Leading the Way to Improvements in Public Health
Public health is a dynamic and challenging, multidisciplinary field blending public policy, research, and population health sciences. The focus of public health is on promoting healthy practices and preventing disease among entire populations, rather than on treating individual illness.
The University of Vermont’s online Certificate of Graduate Study in Public Health enables students to explore current public health and health policy issues while gaining a strong foundation in population health sciences including epidemiology, biostatistics and environmental health.
