Bachelor of Science in Public Health (Online)

Grand Canyon University’s Bachelor of Science in Public Health program prepares students to work as public health practitioners in various health-related settings, including community-based organizations, government agencies, behavioral health agencies, primary care centers and global or domestic nonprofit organizations. The coursework is designed to ensure that graduates of this program can carry out day-to-day tasks of public health organizations, such as data collection and analysis, program planning, community outreach, communications and program support. The BS in Public Health program also integrates the National Commission for Health Education Credentialing (NCHEC) Seven Areas of Responsibility for Health Education Specialists, addressing fundamental skills in community assessment, program planning, implementation and evaluation.

This public health degree provides the knowledge, resources and tools needed to design and implement effective health promotion programs—including health education interventions and policies for specific populations within the larger community. Public health practitioners focus on the prevention of communicable and chronic diseases, as well as health education and promotion and reducing the impact of environmental hazards. Students will learn skills such as culturally sensitive communication, locating and using public health information and data, addressing social determinants of health, advocating for health promotion and community engagement. This field emphasizes promoting health and wellness, tracking disease outbreaks, preventing injury and disability and creating healthy communities.
