Health Science

As a student in the Petrock School of Public Health, you’ll develop into a leader -- engaged, culturally competent, strategically and politically astute. You’ll have career options -- in academia as an advocate and as an activist in your field. 

The Petrock School of Health Sciences is committed to forging a bold path to ensuring the health in our communities. We suffuse health equity, aging and lifespan health, and health policy/advocacy into all of our programs. 

The School is based on a foundation of academic excellence within a framing context of community partnership and participation supported by pillars of innovation and relevant research. We aim to address the health needs of the community, the nation and the world by focusing on the education and preparation of students while maintaining clear linkage to and immersion in community health and policy initiatives.
