Change yourself.  Change Louisiana.
…with a Bachelor of Science in Public Health (BSPH) from LSUHSC New Orleans School of Public Health

The BSPH curriculum introduces the concepts, principles, skills, and methods used in public health practice, while allowing flexibility through directed and focused electives. In addition, because communications skills are vital in addressing public health issues, the curriculum is designed to allow students to develop their interpersonal expertise. Finally, because hands-on training is also critical to robust preparation for a career in public health, the proposed BSPH curriculum includes a service learning experience consisting of working with community-based organizations to address a public health issue.

Our BSPH program is designed as a 2 + 2 program where students spend 2 years (on average) completing prerequisite courses (60 credit hours) on any accredited university or college campus followed by 2 years with us at LSUHSC in New Orleans (60 credit hours in public health).
