Description:Doctors might help a dozen or so patients a day. Public health professionals help thousands. Explore how social, cultural, political, and geographical conditions play a pivotal role in health - and how understanding these factors can help us tackle smoking, obesity, infectious diseases, and other modern-day health challenges. A Bachelor of Public Health degree will equip you to make important contributions to society, whether it's researching ways to control infectious diseases such as COVID-19, developing healthy eating campaigns for teenagers, or improving social services for seniors in your community. Through Waterloo's co-op program, you'll earn money, have access to North America's largest selection of co-op jobs, and graduate with up to 2 years of valuable work experience.
