Serve and Lead Communities in Health and Wellness
Public health is integral to society. In the ever-changing context of our healthcare industry, the demand for professionals trained in public health is increasing. Positions related to public health are predicted to grow nearly 20% nationwide by 2026 – nearly double the rate for all other occupations.
While healthcare serves a critical role in diagnosing and treating injury and illness, a career in public health will allow you to focus on proactive measures to preventing injury and reducing the spread of disease. As an effective leader in public health, you will have the opportunity to inform and empower individuals, communities, and populations to make healthy choices, to reduce morbidity and mortality, and to decrease health expenditures. Public health is also a prime field for contributing to those in underserved areas, including urban, rural, and international populations.
The Master of Public Health with a concentration in Community Health Education at Concordia University Irvine will provide you with a solid foundation in the fundamental areas of public health that is grounded in research and ethical principles. Guided by expert faculty and professional mentors, you will experience a faith-based education that emphasizes servant leadership and community health promotion.
