Undergraduate Education

Creating the pipeline into public health

Undergraduate Education | UC Denver Downtown Campus

The Colorado School of Public Health is committed to creating a strong, diverse and well prepared pipeline of future health professionals. We work with local colleges and community groups to target middle school, high school and undergraduate students who are interested in health-based careers. 

Although the Colorado School of Public Health does not directly offer undergraduate education options to these students, our faculty collaborate with several undergraduate programs across the state. These, and other programs, prepare students for entry into the school’s graduate level degree programs and entry-level public health positions.  

Public Health 

University of Colorado Denver – BA/BS Public Health

In response to the tremendous career and research opportunities in public health, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS) in partnership with the Colorado School of Public Health (ColoradoSPH), created an undergraduate major in Public Health, comprised of both a Bachelor of Arts (BA) and Bachelor of Science (BS) degree. All core classes for the public health major will be team taught with one faculty from the downtown campus and the other from the Anschutz Medical Campus.
