Public Health

Public health affects every aspect of our daily lives. From the food and water we consume to the air we breathe, our knowledge of public health can enhance the lives of people dramatically. This FIGS course will explore public health from an interdisciplinary perspective so that students can understand how it plays a role in human behavior, environmental policy, professional research, humanitarian interventions, and much more. Students will examine health statuses among different populations and be introduced to a wide variety of career opportunities within the Public Health field.
