SUNY Cortland’s B.S. in Community Health program get students into the field early and often. The first course in the major requires students to complete a service learning project in conjunction with a local public health agency and a capstone full-semester full-time internship is required at the end. In between, students participate in undergraduate research, assist faculty with public health research and service projects, complete smaller internships and/or health-related volunteer activities across the campus and in the community. Students have public health study abroad opportunities in Australia, India, Belize, Ireland, the United Kingdom, across the European continent, Ghana, Kenya and soon Cuba. Students have recently completed their capstone internships in Ireland, Ghana, Peru, Belize and South Africa.
