Entry into the major is competitive. A holistic admissions review assesses the following areas: completion of the required and preferred admission requirements, GPA, grade trend, evidence of a background and/or interest in public health, and a well-composed and developed personal statement. The Personal Statement should cover:
The main reasons for choosing the Health Studies degree program
Personal and professional goals as they relate to health
Relevant experience that has influenced your desire for a Health Studies degree
Eligibility for admission to Health Studies does not ensure acceptance into the major. Due to volume of applications, we are unable to accept all interested students. In these situations, the most highly qualified students will be selected up to the enrollment limits in the specific programs.
