The Bachelor of Arts in Health, Society, and Policy focuses on the human and policy side of health and illness. This degree will train students to recognize the many social and cultural determinants of health, and to apply knowledge of human behavior and the social environment to evaluate and understand the risks and challenges to health for diverse populations. Students in the program will study the individual's relationship to the communities they belong to, by completing courses about health, health care, and illness in diverse social and cultural contexts. Students will acquire skills in writing, communication, and analysis that are critical to their future careers in health fields.
We also offer a BA in Health, Society, and Policy (HESP) to the MS in Epidemiology. The 4+1 option will provide qualified students interested in health policy, health care, and epidemiology an accelerated route to earn both the BA degree and the MS degree within five years.
