Community Health

Department Head: Dr. Tyler Smith

The field of community health is a diverse, dynamic and growing field of service professionals working to improve the well being of the public. A National University public health degree will prepare you for that challenge. Courses involve both theory and practice, include a supervised internship in a community health agency, and incorporate a capstone project integrating all that has been learned.

Healthcare degrees for undergraduate and graduate programs are offered in both public health and healthcare administration. A healthcare administration degree will prepare you for a managerial role in a variety of public and private agencies at local, state, national, and international levels.

Both the undergraduate and graduate public health programs have concentrations in health promotion and using educational, policy, and advocacy strategies to address the major causes of death: tobacco, over nutrition, sedentary living, alcohol, and injuries. You will learn all this and more when you pursue your healthcare administration degree, offered in either online or in-class formats.
