Community Health Emphasis

The Community Health Specialist emphasis is designed to provide students with the experience and background they need to be eligible for entry-level jobs as health educators and community health promoters in district and county health departments, governmental agencies including Peace Corps and Americorps, non-governmental organizations such as hospitals, businesses and health based not-for-profit organizations such as the American Red Cross, American Cancer Society, American Heart Associations, and the American Diabetic Society.  

The focus also provides good foundation for post-graduate study and is particularly useful for Master's degree programs in public health and community health education.
