BSc in Public Health

The health of populations is a persistent and imperative global concern. We are faced with significant population health challenges that range from rapidly growing and aging populations to urbanization, climate change, new patterns of disease, sustainable development and environmental health challenges, management of man-made and natural disasters, health care financing and healthcare reforms.

The BSc in public health is an interdisciplinary field that seeks to promote and maintain the health, safety and well-being of populations and to prevent and manage disease, disability and human suffering.

This interdisciplinary health program examines population health issues in China as well as in international and global contexts.
