The mission of the Department of Health Studies at Chicago State University is to
provide community/public health and pre-physical therapy education to a culturally
diverse, non-traditional and traditional student body. Our academic programs promote
interdisciplinary educational experiences in the classroom setting and service learning
experiences in the community where students apply their critical thinking skills.
The Department of Health Studies at Chicago State University seeks national and international
recognition as a leader in teaching, research and service. We motivate our students
to become lifelong learners and to seek professional/graduate studies in physical
therapy and to contribute to public health delivery by addressing health disparities
locally and beyond.
