The field of public health is growing fast, both in the United States and worldwide. Public health workers can work in a number of different areas, from assisting in clinics that serve the poor, serving as hospital administrators, working as international aid workers, to advising on national health policy to govern programs like Medicare. As we become more aware of health care costs, public health care workers are those who help to determine which kinds of services are offered, to whom, and how.
Public health workers often major in sociology or politics but they may also come from a pre-medical background. Whatever your major, you may find some of the following courses interesting.
