Home / Degree Programs / International Public Health

This degree is designed for students who want to create solutions to global challenges and generate social impact in health and health care. In this program, you develop the innovative mindset needed for tackling the complex public health issues affecting local and global populations.

The BIPH is designed to build and strengthen the international public health workforce and includes coursework from two leading universities: ASU and the University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia.

Aligned with U.S. accreditation standards in public health, the Bachelor of International Public Health coursework teaches new approaches to emerging public health issues including health promotion, communicable disease prevention, environmental health, public health surveillance and global health management. This program helps students to develop and apply knowledge from multiple disciplines to promote the health and well-being of the human population.

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 complete a capstone experience in their area of interest, which prepares them for careers in global health policy, data and informatics, quality and process improvement, and community-based care.
