Health Department

SUNY Cortland’s health program will prepare you for a variety of health professions or for admission into advanced degree programs. It is designed to help you develop the skills and background that employers and graduate schools seek.

Our graduates make their careers in a wide range of settings, including county health departments, hospitals and other health care facilities, community health organizations, corporate and private wellness facilities and environmental agencies.

If working in public schools interests you, a major in health education might be good for you. You can even student teach in Australia.

You may take courses abroad to partially fulfill your degree requirements. The University of North London, England, offers 15 credit hours and is open to second-semester sophomores, juniors and seniors. Internships are also available in Belize, Africa or Australia.

Our programs will support you in  becoming a high quality health professional and a positive contributor to your community.
