    The College of Business and Public Administration offers a Masters in Public Health. The field of public health has been defined by the Institute of Medicine as:

    "An organized community effort to address public health by applying scientific and technical knowledge to promote health."

    Public Health focuses on broad community initiatives to promote health through efforts to help protect the population's health status. The EWU Master of Public Health program is an interdisciplinary approach bringing together many academic disciplines to promote a broad intellectual framework. For problem solving the challenges emerging in public health, there are external influences such as the physical and social environment, as well as internal factors like personal behaviors and the genetic makeup which impact the status of an individual's health. These determinants of health define the role of public health in the healthcare delivery system. The Master of Public Health program strives to provide the student with both analytical and practical knowledge and the skills to assume positions in improving the public's health and effective integration with healthcare delivery systems.
