Home / Degree Programs / International Public Health

The Bachelor of International Public Health advances the core principles of the PLuS Alliance by developing solutions to global challenges and generating social impact in health and health care. This degree program is designed to build and strengthen the international public health workforce and includes coursework from three leading universities: ASU, the University of New South Wales and King's College. Aligned with U.S. accreditation standards in public health, the coursework teaches new approaches to emerging public health issues including health promotion, communicable disease prevention, environmental health, public health surveillance and global health management.

Students also have the opportunity to study abroad through optional faculty-led Global Intensive Experiences as well as semester, summer and spring break programs.

In their final year, students will complete a capstone experience either locally or abroad in their area of interest, which will prepare them for careers in global health policy, data and informatics, systems thinking, and community-based care.
