This minor is a great pairing with another four-year bachelor’s degree program, and can be flexible depending on your focus. For pre-medicine and pre-veterinary students, this is a great way to gain a broader understanding of medicine and health at a global level. For anthropology or history majors, this minor will help you understand the complexities of public health in societies.
Drawing together a curriculum that reaches communities on a local, national, and global level, the Public Health degree at the University of Washington offers students numerous opportunities to jump into field the wherever they find a niche. Among the focus areas of the major are Assessment and Measurement, Environment, Ethics and Social Justice, Communication, Natural Science, Population Health, Policy, and Social Science.
The program at Cornell also encourages experiential learning in a three-credit-hour course that takes place in a research lab or community setting. Some students choose to complete this credit in an off-campus academic setting too. For example, the Urban Semester in New York City, Cornell in Washington, or the Capital Semester in Albany.
An introduction to the concepts, theories, and status of research in health promotion and disease prevention, with an emphasis on methods employed to modify group and individual health-related behaviors. This course examines methods of ascertaining health behaviors, the design and interpretation of behavioral intervention programs to modify behaviors, and current trends in the study of how lifestyle and preventive health practices impact on public health.
This course provides an introduction to the social, psychological, and behavioral issues that influence patterns of health and health care delivery. The focus is on the integration of the biomedical, social, psychological, and behavioral factors that must be taken into consideration when public health initiatives are developed and implemented. The course is based on ecological theories of influences on health behavior. The course also includes the application of epidemiologic methods to the study of social, psychological, and behavioral influences on health, disease, and recovery/mortality.

One of the biggest components of the Public Health program at Johns Hopkins is the Applied Experience requirement, which requires all students to complete an 85-hour public health experience in the community. Students work one-on-one with public health professionals in their area of interest. Some examples include interning with an NGO, or volunteering at a health clinic, or conducting a research project with a faculty member.
Unlike some programs that approach public health from more of a liberal arts perspective, this program jumps into the heavy sciences in year one—biology, general chemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry—to lay a solid foundation in medicine. The course load branches into the core public health classes in year two, requiring epidemiology, biostatistics, and health policy courses.
Students can choose 9 elective courses from the list below. Students may also opt to choose courses from other departments to satisfy the elective requirements.
This course covers the basic theoretical aspects and applications of various models to analyze time to event data. Basic concepts such as the survival function, hazard function, right and interval censoring, and common nonparametric and parametric methods and models for analyzing survival data will be covered. The proportional hazards (PH) model with fixed and time dependent covariates, the stratified PH model, sample size calculations, and regression diagnostics for survival models will also be covered.
Prerequisites: BIOS 5755, EPID 5755, BIOS 5757
