Mission

The Public Health Program at Westminster College prepares those interested in a career in public health or health sciences with the proper tools necessary to promote health and prevent illness in Utah, the Intermountain West, the United States and the world. The program is grounded in the belief that effective public health practitioners are properly trained in the core competencies of public health, which include analytic and assessment skills, policy development and program planning skills, communication skills, cultural competency skills, community dimensions of practice skills, basic public health science skills, financial planning and management skills, and leadership and systems thinking skills. We accomplish this while embracing the core values of Westminster College: impassioned teaching and active learning, respect for diverse people and perspectives, collaboration and teamwork, personal and social responsibility, college-wide excellence and high ethical standards.

This educational endeavor allows us to prepare public health workers as well as citizens who are truly ready to meet the health challenges of the 21st century and to meet the diverse needs of public health locally, nationally and globally.
