Program Details

There is a growing need to address the health issues at the human-animal-environment interface. As a One Health program student, you have a chance to become part of a new generation of public health practitioners and professionals who are taking on the health impacts of complex issues such as climate change, infectious diseases and epidemics. Through this program, you will build skills that are essential for assessing and addressing public health problems from a holistic view.

One Health is a relatively new academic discipline that recognizes connections among the health of animals, humans and the environment. New strategies are needed to cope with changing ecosystems that lead to altered patterns of disease transmission. A One Health workforce is in demand to prevent, detect and respond to infectious diseases and epidemics in the U.S. and around the world. 

Students in this program may have the opportunity to transfer to the Master of Public Health degree program if the student is admitted to the MPH program and the courses meet degree requirements.
