The Health Policy track prepares students for a multiplicity of career paths. Students interested in furthering their education could pursue graduate programs such as the MPH (Masters in Public Health) and focus on areas such as epidemiology, or health policy. Students could also pursue graduate degrees in Sociology or Political Science. Doing so would open students to opportunities in academia, federal or state government offices that address health-related issues. These could range from aging-related issues to community health concerns. Students could also pursue employment opportunities with international organizations involved in providing health related services. Students with an undergraduate degree could pursue employment opportunities with non-profit organizations dedicated to serving under-represented populations as well as local governmental agencies. Here, programs that highlight the interconnection between economic well-being and health would allow students to demonstrate their mastery of analytic skills and their knowledge of public policy implications.
