The interdisciplinary Community Health program at Clarkson College is for individuals interested in promoting health and helping people access the services they need. The curriculum prepares students who are interested in making a difference, but do not feel called to serve in the invasive aspects of medicine. Whether students choose to practice in a rural area or urban setting, the courses prepare them for a variety of community health professions outside direct patient care. Our program also offers concentrations in gerontology, human services, public health, women’s health and health care business.
Each degree option is offered 100 percent online with select courses available on campus, and students may complete courses year-round on a full- or part-time basis. Applications are accepted year-round, with entry into Community Health courses in the fall and spring semester. Students wishing to start in the summer may take some of their general education or support courses. Request more information about the program.
