Career Outlook

Meet the Need for Public Health Professionals 

Public health is one of the nation’s fastest-growing fields. However, it is also critically lacking all over the country—an issue that has increased as a significant concern in recent years. There is a constant, unanswered demand for talented, trained public health professionals in a broad range of areas in the U.S. Just a snapshot of examples include the expectation that the field of epidemiology will grow by 26% by 2031, and there are about 16,100 openings for health education specialists and community health workers each year on average.

Our online program will prepare you with the skills and expertise necessary to fulfill these and other critical public health needs and become a leader who is well-equipped to work for positive change.
