The curriculum in public health is designed to fill the need for allied health professionals who have a solid background in public health and/or environmental science. The curriculum includes options in health issues and policy, health analysis and research, and environmental health sciences.

The public health program is an interdepartmental curriculum that utilizes the resources of both the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy and Cook College.

Students learn qualitative, quantitative, and analytical skills used by health program and facility managers, planning agencies, and education and evaluation organizations. They use computers to develop management information systems and learn statistical methodology, including its public health application in epidemiology.

An internship provides practical job experience and gives students the opportunity to apply theory while testing their technical competence under the direct supervision of a knowledgeable health care professional.

Graduates are prepared for employment in areas of the health services delivery and regulation field that require policy development, implementation, and evaluation. Graduates also may prepare for the New Jersey Sanitarian License Examination.

Students who intend to prepare for the New Jersey Sanitarians License Examination must complete at least 32 credits of courses in mathematics and sciences.

See http://www.policy.rutgers.edufor further information on the public health major.
