About the Program
Thank you for your interest in our BSPH degree program in Health Policy and Management! Our students are motivated to improve individual and population health, advance health equity, and strengthen access to the resources needed to be healthy through effective policy and management of health-related organizations and programs. Our program prepares students with a strong public health foundation, in-depth knowledge of the U.S. health system, and essential analytical, teamwork, and management skills, who pursue careers as health leaders, managers, policymakers, practitioners, clinicians, and researchers.  Key program features include: 
  • Students generally apply during their sophomore year at UNC, and if admitted, begin coursework in the HPM major in their junior fall 
  • The program is small – we admit about 45 students per year 
  • Students go through the program as a cohort, which creates a strong sense of community 
  • We offer an applied, project-based curriculum that emphasizes collaboration and teamwork
  • Students are supported by a dedicated faculty mentor, academic coordinator and career services coordinator
