Public Health

Helping to save lives on a population level through disease and injury prevention.

The study of public health explores the many factors that affect the overall health of a population and contribute to the spread, treatment, and prevention of disease. However, the current public health workforce is inadequate to meet the health needs of our nation's population. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has projected shortages through 2020, and the Association of Schools in Public Health reported the student graduation rate would need to triple over several years to fill the gap. HCC responded as the first two-year college in the nation offering an arts and science associate of arts degree transfer program in public health. In addition to a rigorous curriculum, majors work directly with community-based organizations to develop practical and professional skills.
