Welcome to the Bachelor of Health Science (BHS) in Community Health Degree Program
Community health is probably one of the most significant healthcare issues of our time. As Americans continue to live longer, the quest for a life lived well and in good health is becoming a top priority for people of all ages.
The BHS in Community Health degree program from GSU is designed to provide you with the broad-based educational background you’ll need to design and implement programs that increase the quality, availability, and effectiveness of health and wellness promotions.
The goal? Improved quality of life for aging adults and the community at large.
The program has a strong underpinning in cultural understanding and sensitivity, giving graduates the ability to appreciate—and respond to—cultural and community influences on health and wellness promotion.
The program is comprehensive.
- We take our students through epidemiology.
- We teach them prevention, assessment, and program development.
- We lay the foundations for research to practice.
- We integrate that knowledge into a thorough investigation of wellness programs, from planning to management.
Internships complete the program —and provide opportunities for students to concentrate their experiences.
After completing a 24-credit core curriculum in the major, students will have an opportunity to select one of four tracks for customization of the program:
