You may choose to major, minor, or complete a cluster within the public health-related programs, but cannot do more than one. You are also permitted to use up to two transfer courses toward your public health degree program.
**Beginning in spring 2018: Students need to have completed two of the five Public Health General Core courses (PH 101, PH 102, PH 103, introductory STT course, and either PHL 228 or PHL 225) before they can declare a public health major.

Due to the interdisciplinary nature of public health, no more than two courses can overlap between a public health major and another major. Foundational courses are included as overlaps.
A public health-related major can easily integrate with an interest in the health professions, such as medical or dental school. Pre-health students may approach completing the necessary pre-health admission requirements in several different ways. It is to the applicants' advantage to tailor their schedules to reflect their specific needs and strengths. Students are strongly encouraged to consult with a health professions advisor for further program planning assistance.
