i’m a bio major in my 3rd yr of univ, my goal was to get into med school and become a pediatrician, but as im going on with my edu, i’m starting to realize that maybe i dont want to be a doctor, well just because it takes way too many yrs and also because it’s very intense… due to my current problems and situations, i thought that maybe it’d be better for me that i get into something like public health instead. but i am not sure if to get into public health u have to either go into med, nursing etc first.. i want to work with people and health issues etc… but if i do i will get masters in public health. also i want to live and work in africa… so how do i go about pursing a career in public health? should i carry on with a bachelors in biology, and then go for masters in public health? or what kind of bachelors should i graduate with in order to be well rounded in a public health career.

and if i did get into this how will i be able to go about.. in working when im in africa

Whats the difference between Microbiology and a Public Health Major? I’m right now studying Biology, and soon to start my Masters in either Microbiology or infectious diseases. Although i read about the public health degree and I’m not sure what the difference is. Both deal with infectious diseases.

I’ve recently heard about the major public health and would like to get more information on it. What do you learn for a public health degree? What do you do with a public health degree after graduating from college? I would appreciate any info regarding what a public health degree means. I would also love to hear from any who is majoring in it or who graduated with a public health degree.

But I also want a public health degree, so I wanted to know what kind of background would you need to get into a public health school.

Anyway information would be greatly appreciated!
