Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Health

Current healthcare reforms have increased the demand for public health educators, health promotion specialists and allied health professionals. The University of Houston’s Bachelor of Science Health program is dedicated to meeting those needs by offering four degree tracks: public health; health promotion; health promotion for allied health professionals; and the new 4+1 BS in Health with a Specialization in Public Health and Master’s in Public Health. These tracks will prepare graduates to work in a variety of settings including public health agencies, worksite health promotion and voluntary health agencies.
