Welcome to the Elon Public Health Studies Program 

The Public Health Studies major prepares students with the knowledge and skills to address the public health challenges of hte 21st century. Students apply interdisciplinary and population health frameworks to the analysis of the determinants of health and interventions to address diseases and other health conditions. The pursuit of health equity at the local, national, and global  levels is emphasized. Students are prepared to enter the workplace and/or continue their education in public health or related fields. 

"The Public Health Studies minor has enabled me to explore different aspects of public health and helped me with my applications for graduate school. I intend to pursue a career in public health, so the more experience I gain as an undergraduate, the more prepared I will be as a professional."

-Dana Wolff '09
