The Department of Health builds its philosophy on the precept that the development of the whole person includes physical, mental, social, emotional, and spiritual health, and is fundamental to life and effective service to God and men. Therefore, the mission of the department is to prepare qualified and highly motivated men and women to promote a healthy lifestyle in the community through various careers related to public health.

At the end of their four-year study, students are required to complete a 200-hour internship. With these skills and experiences, the department strives to accentuate professionalism in our service to the community.
We also encourage diversity among students to enrich their experiences and promote respects and teamwork.
