Calling all undergrads!
Want to study how health issues impact everyday life? The UF College of Public Health and Health Professions has received approval from the Florida Board of Governors to offer a bachelor’s degree in public health beginning this fall. Interest in public health has exploded in recent years with the emergence of serious health issues at home and abroad, such as air pollution in Asian countries and the spread of the Zika virus, said Michael G. Perri, Ph.D., dean of the UF College of Public Health and Health Professions. UF students will have the opportunity to gain broad public health knowledge at the undergraduate level as they pursue careers not only in health fields, but also in other areas where public health plays an important role, including public administration, law and government.
