Bachelor’s Degree

‌Bachelor of Arts in Public Health Overview

Students interested in pursuing the BA in Public Health must first complete 60 hours of prerequisite general education course work at UIC or another college or university including three prerequisite courses in public health—PUBH 100: Health and the Public, PUBH 110: Public Health and Global Societies, and PUBH 120: Public Health and the Study of Disease and Epidemics. Please note that while successful applicants to the program typically have a GPA of at least a 2.75/4.00, there are four courses which must be completed with B grades or higher (PUBH 100, PUBH 110, PUBH 120, and the Quantitative Reasoning requirement). If admitted to the program, students will then complete an additional 60 hours of major course work. Admission to the program is selective and completion of the prerequisite course work does not guarantee admission. For more specific information about the program, please review the materials below:
