The BIPH builds and strengthens the international public health workforce using coursework from two leading universities: ASU and the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia.
Aligned with U.S. accreditation standards in public health, the Bachelor of International Public Health program teaches new approaches to public health issues, including health promotion, communicable disease prevention, environmental health, public health surveillance and global health management. Students develop a holistic, equitable, ethical and sustainable approach to public health practice, collaborating with diverse stakeholders to develop and implement strategies to ensure health for all.
Students have the opportunity to study abroad through faculty-led global intensive experiences as well as semester, summer and spring break programs.
In their final year, students complete a capstone experience in their area of interest, which prepares them for their career of choice.
