Public and Community Health
The study of public health is a multidisciplinary enterprise that requires educational contributions from the natural sciences, social sciences, mathematics and the humanities. The mission of the Lasell University Bachelor of Science in Public and Community Health degree program is to provide students with the necessary skills and training to facilitate programs and disseminate information pertaining to issues related to healthcare. Students will also be eligible to apply for the Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES) certification that is supported by the National Commission for Health Education Credentialing. Our coursework focuses on the use of laboratories and connected learning to reinforce theory and concepts learned in the classroom. In addition, students will be presented with meaningful educational experiences based on the knowledge perspectives of the Lasell University core curriculum: creativity and aesthetics, scientific inquiry and problem solving, individuals and society, and global and historical perspectives.
