Graduates of the Population Health Management bachelor degree program will be prepared for careers in settings such as medical homes, hospitals, community health centers and schools, as well as non-profit and government organizations. The curriculum offers courses covering the social factors (i.e., gender, socioeconomic status, age) in health and illness, coping with illness, cultural competency, healthcare organizations, and disease prevention.
