Undergraduates majoring in community health and human services (CHHS) chose a concentration in either community health (CH) or human services (HS). Upon successful completion of the major, they graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree.
The CHHS program offers minors in community health and human services to all UAB students. CHHS majors concentrating in community health can minor in human services; those concentrating in human services can minor in community health.
We offer two graduate degree programs and two certificate programs: a certificate program in health education, a Master of Education degree program in community health with an optional non-profit management certificate, and a doctoral degree program in health education/health promotion.

Every course I took at UAB is today an invaluable asset; I now have the opportunity to see how the theories we learned translate into real-world situations.
