An overview of Baldwin Wallace University's Public Health program
One of only a few such programs in Ohio, the newly developed Public Health program at Baldwin Wallace University (BW) leading to the Bachelor of Science in Public Health (BSPH) is designed to train a new generation of public health professionals prepared to face the emerging challenges to human health and health care from a population perspective.
The curriculum is designed to train students in multidisciplinary approaches to Public Health practice and research including a comprehensive and rigorous study of epidemiology, biostatistics, social and behavioral sciences, environmental health, health policy and management.
Students enrolled in BW's Public Health program learn about the public health care system in the U.S. and abroad and emerging public health concerns such as health disparity, pandemic infectious disease and new threats to the environment. The forty six credit hours of coursework is intended to utilize class room activities, service learning and research in order to provides student with the fundamental knowledge and principles, applications, and skills needed to develop a firm appreciation of health and disease prevention at the population level, and the opportunity to use this special knowledge to transform the experience of their major education into innovative approaches for solving problems in health care and assessment. The current curriculum emphasizes the following concentrations: i) Global Health; ii) Health Promotion and Education; and iii) Health Prevention.
