Baylor University's Bachelor of Science in Public Health (BSPH) is a nationally accredited degree program that prepares students to promote healthy lifestyles and enhance quality of life for individuals and communities.
Public health educators work in a variety of exciting work settings that include nonprofit community health organizations, public health agencies, worksite and health promotion programs, schools, and voluntary health agencies (American Cancer Society, American Heart Association, etc.). The core competencies of an entry-level public health educator that have been identified by our profession serve as the framework for our curriculum. To date, 100% of our graduates who have taken the national certification exam to become a Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES) have succeeded. Our BSPH graduates who have at least five years of public health work experience are also eligible to take the national exam to become Certified in Public Health (CPH).
This program is accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH). Learn more at ceph.org.
