Admission to a Bachelor of Science in Public Health (BSPH) Major

All BSPH Majors are capped. Capped majors are majors with limited enrollment. We strongly suggest that you submit an alternate major on your application and that your alternate major not be capped. If you are not directly admitted into one of the BSPH Majors you can still complete the Public Health Entry Requirement and declare a BSPH Major after meeting the entry requirement. Please see the Public Health Entry Requirement on our website for additional information.
