Major and Minor in Public Health Studies

Public Health Studies shows you how health is related to all aspects of human life, and how societies serve the health care needs of their people. 

Why Public Health Studies?

Roanoke's Public Health Studies is an interdisciplinary approach to the health care arena, offering you diverse perspectives on health through courses in both life and social sciences. Public Health Studies will help you find a niche in the health field that matches you own personal passions, and will give you an advantage over those who've pursued a purely technical approach to health education.

Through rigorous investigation and analysis, Public Health Studies provides you with a strong foundation for a range of careers in the health field, such as administration, advocacy, counseling, medical practice, public policy, research & analysis, social work and occupational & physical therapy.

Roanoke has exceptionally strong relationships with local health care organizations. These partnerships offer you a myriad of opportunities for research and internships in some of the finest health organizations in the Middle Atlantic region.
