:D Public health degrees open doors beyond just the commonly assumed government career path. There are actually a wide variety of settings in which public health graduates may work, as with any degree program. Some of those settings are:
Public: Health department administration, disaster preparedness and public nursing are just three areas in which a public health graduate may work for the government.
Education: Education-related roles in public health
are often as teachers to public health students or within research.
Private: Whether as a consultant or employee, public health graduates often work for pharmaceutical brands, healthcare organizations, Medical Schools
or insurance companies.
Non-profit: Non-profit roles for public health graduates tend to address gaps in healthcare or specialize in a specific population. For example, a non-profit role may serve minorities, veterans or mothers.
