We are exceptionally connected, and so is our health.
The events of the recent past show us the desperate need for an in-depth understanding of public health.
The Public Health emphasis at Tennessee Wesleyan helps students develop knowledge, skills, and experience in the area of public health through classroom learning, research projects, and hands-on community collaborations.
Graduates of the Public Health emphasis will be prepared to hold a variety of positions in community-based organizations where community outreach for health and wellness promotion is a key component of the mission. Upon graduation, students will be able to help communities learn how to plan, implement, and evaluate programs to lead to healthier populations.
Graduates are prepared for a career working for local health departments, non-profit organizations focused on health, graduate school, and more.
