Welcome to the Department of Public Health!
At the Western Kentucky University and well beyond our campus, Public Health is critical and challenging. There are many reasons to choose a career in public health, but when you scratch the surface of any professional in our field, they will tell you what they care about most is social justice, eliminating poverty, promoting healthy lifestyles, preventing premature disease and death, and making our world a better place to live.
If you choose to pursue a career in public health, we know that you will never regret that choice, that your career options will continue to expand throughout your working life, and that you will experience the rewards of a lifetime committed to helping others in a meaningful way. We hope that you will begin your career with us!
