Welcome to Health Science and Human Ecology
The mission of the department is to prepare highly competent professionals
who are well prepared in the disciplines of public health including environmental health science, health care management and administration, nutrition and food sciences, and public health education,
and to maintain the department as a public health leader within the University's
service area. Graduates will include persons who exhibit broad health
science knowledge, applied technical and human skills, clear personal
and social values, civic commitment to the community, and a desire for
lifelong learning and achievement. To this end, we are committed to achieving
excellence in undergraduate and graduate education by being at the forefront
of scientific advancement and professional practice in the areas of research,
teaching, and service consistent with the philosophy and goals of the
California State University System, the San Bernardino campus, and the
College of Natural Sciences.
We help students prepare for jobs in local health departments, community organizations, health services, schools, hospitals, industry, tribal health, and many other sites. Our students may also pursue graduate programs in research, epidemiology, physician assistant, nursing, occupational and respiratory therapies, and other allied health careers.
