Welcome Incoming Freshmen
We are so excited you chose our major!
We recommend that entering freshmen take PH 1: Understanding Your Health in your first semester. In addition, you could take PH 15: Human Life Span or PH 67: Introductory Health Statistics. We have prepared roadmaps to help you decide what classes to take in what order. The roadmaps for each pathway can be found here:
- Public Health with a minor
- Public Health, Concentration in Community Health Education
- Public Health, Concentration in Population Data Science
We recommend that you follow these road maps; however, you do not have to do so. In your first three or four semesters, your main focus will be on completing your lower division General Education courses. Take the time to explore all the interesting classes the university has to offer!
If you'd like to talk with advisors about selecting the right courses or getting support in your classes, please visit the College Student Success Center. Our department faculty and peer advisors are also available to help!
