Public health is the art and science of preventing disease, prolonging life, and promoting human health through organized efforts. Public health goes far beyond the doctor’s office as it also involves research, access to healthcare services, education, and community building.

Job prospects in public health are massive right now and predicted to grow by seven times the national average (up 18% by 2028 alone). Whether the goal is to work in the healthcare industry (which makes up a whopping 20% of GDP) or create policies that save and improve lives, Wittenberg’s public health major may be the perfect fit. Students are expected to thrive in this newly announced program thanks to the personal attention from faculty and the chance to learn through project- and discussion-based classes.
