About Undergraduate Education

In the fall of 2017, we will expand our undergraduate education to include an upper-level undergraduate degree, leading to a BS in Public Health Sciences, or a BA in Community and Global Public Health.  

The program emphasis will be on multidisciplinary training, with a focus on 21st century public health problems such as antimicrobial resistance, emerging infectious diseases, bioterrorism, obesity, unequal access to care, rapid technological changes in the health care system, environmental toxins, shortage of clean water, tobacco use, climate impacts on food supply, and dozens of other topics. Each major will require a field learning experience, with study-abroad opportunities available. All U-M undergraduates are welcome to enroll in any undergraduate public health course; you do not need to be a public health major.
