Public Health (BS)

Creating healthy people and communities

Grounded in the basic sciences with an emphasis on population health, the B.S. in Public Health (BSPH) degree prepares students for positions in fields such as health education, epidemiology, and environmental health, across nonprofit, industry, and government sectors. Pre-health students who seek a medical or health professions degree can broaden their experience with a multidisciplinary public health major.


Loyola University Chicago Public Health Programs are accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH). In March 2021, CEPH Board of Councilors acted to renew our BSPH and MPH programs' accreditation for a seven-year period. For questions on accreditation, please email Dr. Ruth Kafensztok.
