Community Health Program Curriculum
The Community Health program curriculum is built on the belief that it is critical for KU students to not only gain a broad-based community health education, but to supplement that education with hands-on practical experience in the field. This powerful combination allows our students to excel in any community health environment. Freshmen and transfer students will complete the KU Core Curriculum for general education requirements. Review the Academic Catalog or consult the program detail sheet (pdf) for more comprehensive information.
