Inside the Program

Student group improves public health through Tobacco Free campus initiative

Public Health Sciences students helped start and implement the Tobacco Free Campus Ambassador program to support the WSU Tobacco Free campus policy. The push to go tobacco free has been led by Public Health Sciences going back to 2005 when a group of students formed the Health, Education, Advocates for Leadership, Teamwork and Humanity (HEALTH) Student Association.

Students also celebrate National Public Health Week annually by volunteering in the community and displaying health educational materials around campus.


Students complete a health science core curriculum that provides a foundation in health services delivery, population health assessment and leadership. You'll also get an introduction to public health,  health services management, aging studies and ethics. This professional degree program requires a mix of science and mathematics courses that prepare graduates for admission to a variety of clinical education programs. Graduates often seek further education in clinical programs such as physician assistant, physical therapy, nursing, medical laboratory sciences and dental hygiene.

A departmental honors track is also available for this major.
