These degrees will provide you with the specialized knowledge and skills you will need for a myriad of career opportunities. You may choose to protect the environment, prevent the spread of disease, enhance the health and well-being of people here and abroad, or affect changes in policy and law to ensure the rights of all citizens to a healthy world.
