Within this undergraduate in Public Health, you will research public health challenges common to both the UAE and global communities, compare private and public health sectors within the UAE and outline strategies for the improvement of all areas in the UAE’s public health sphere.

The reputation of our students and faculty in the market means we are regularly invited to work with Department of Health - Abu Dhabi (DOH) - on public awareness campaigns, the hosting of the DOH Public Health Forum at ADU and other health related initiatives. This gives you a multitude of volunteer opportunities to put the theory into practice at the same time as positively influencing the health of the community in which you live.

Introduction to Public Health is also offered as a stand-alone course (elective) and is hugely popular. Students can study a minor in Public Health and Happiness and Positive Psychology will also be offered as an elective course available to all students.
