Choose a Public Health Degree Based on Your Personality
Individuals find it easier to work in environments that are better suited to their liking. The same is true for careers and personalities. The Career Theory of John Holland is a system used to help individuals discover their personality type and determine a career path or work environment that’s better suited for their personality. Because public health has an extensive list of specializations and career opportunities, PublicHealthDegrees.org has created a public health specific version of the Holland Codes – matching the Holland Codes personality types to potential common public health degrees to pursue.

Please note that individuals may have a combination of personality types, some personalities may overlap public health specializations, and that the above roles are only a few of the many career opportunities within the public health field. It is always possible to explore multiple career paths through opportunities provided by a public health program or in the public health field itself. Additionally, individuals can try to find a role that combines job responsibilities they like and their passion within public health through research and networking!
