Public health is the scientific study of promoting and protecting the health of people and where they live, learn, work and play.
With a degree in public health, you’ll explore how to solve pressing health challenges, such as preventing disease, reducing toxins in our environment, addressing health disparities and more.
Public health professionals promote and protect the health of people and communities – where they live, learn, work and play.
At Oregon State University, we offer degree options in health management and policy, as well as health promotion and health behavior.
