Undergraduate Class

Four majors comprise the public health program at Rochester:

  • Bioethics
  • Epidemiology
  • Health, Behavior, and Society
  • Health Policy

Regardless of major, our goal is to educate you in an interdisciplinary framework of understanding and responding to global, regional, and local public health challenges.

The curriculum integrates a wide array of disciplines that support the field of public health. The majors are united by a shared set of core competencies. Each major also incorporates a variety of disciplines that support the research needs of the specific major.

Of the four majors, three qualify as majors in the social sciences (epidemiology; health, behavior, and society; and health policy), and one qualifies as a major in the humanities (bioethics). In addition, we offer four minors, each comprising six courses.
