Spotlight on Public Health

By Joe Aguilar

A master’s degree is now the basic qualification needed for many public health jobs according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). The public health sector is one of the US economy’s most important areas of employment, and it’s projected to grow quickly in the coming years.

Do you have a strong desire to help people improve their lives? With a master’s degree in public health you can be on your way to entering one of the fastest growing employment sectors in the United States. Social work jobs provide some of the top opportunities in the public health market. Most social workers specialize in areas such as family, medical, or mental health. Others develop policies and programs to combat issues like domestic violence, drug abuse, and poverty.
