Undergraduate Public Health Programs
Overview: In 2003, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) recommended that “…all undergraduates should have access to education in public health. Additionally, the report stated, “public health education is an essential part of the training of citizens.”
It is in this light, that the Drexel University School of Public Health is dedicated to undergraduate public health education. With collaboration and scholarship between the school and the College of Arts and Sciences, our academic programs highlight the breadth and depth of the field through two undergraduate programs in public health.
Degrees: Bachelor of Science in Public Health | Minor Degree in Public Health
The School of Public Health (SPH) offers both a BS in Public Health and minor degree in public health for undergraduate students at Drexel University.
The SPH is one of the fastest growing schools of public health in the country with enrollment doubling in the past five years as have the numbers of faculty and programs. The SPH is also the only fully accredited School of Public Health in Philadelphia and a full member of the Association of Schools of Public Health.
Resources: The SPH offers student a number of resources to help students better understand public health as a profession and career choice, as well as career services and the research focus of faculty teaching in the undergraduate programs.
