University of Iowa College of Public Health
The College of Public Health offers the undergraduate Bachelor of Arts (BA) in public health and the Bachelor of Science (BS) in public health. If you are interested in the health sciences, are socially-minded, and want to help people on a large scale, public health might be for you.
Both of our degree options provide you with a basic understanding of the five core public health knowledge areas: biostatistics, social and behavioral sciences, epidemiology, health policy and management, and occupational and environmental health sciences. No matter which program you choose, you will be prepared to enter the workforce or continue your education into areas such as public health, medical school, or other professional health sciences schools and beyond.
