Public Health Biology Program Description
The new Master of Arts in Public Health Biology is a novel, public health-oriented online degree program for part-time students designed to foster knowledge of and appreciation for the many ways that modern biological principles and research methods can be applied to the identification, treatment, and prevention of conditions of relevance to the health of the public.  It will provide a solid, conceptual basis for an understanding of the rationale, tools and approaches that are essential for addressing problems in public health.
