Public health is all around us. It’s the seat belt you fasten in your car, the no smoking sign on campus and the flu shot you received last fall. If you’re interested in disease prevention, the promotion of healthy living or the policy regulating all of the above, join the Public Health Professions program at Anne Arundel Community College.

The Public Health Professions program is for students interested in pursuing public health and transferring to a four-year institution or gaining personal enrichment. Once general education requirements are satisfied, the program can be completed entirely online.


The School of Health Sciences is proud to offer the following Associate of Science (A.S.) in this area of study. 

Public Health Professions, A.S.

This public health program fosters well-rounded students through a robust curriculum, including public health course requirements and general education requirements.


What could you do with a public health degree?

Public health is a versatile field with opportunities to educate the public and your community in improved health and disease and injury prevention. Public health workers are found in both public and private organizations and the government. This degree will prepare you for entry-level opportunities in health departments and the health industry, and you’ll be eligible to transfer to universities that offer bachelor’s degree programs in public health to ready you to pursue one of these careers.
