   Introduction

   The multiple and complex factors that affect the health and wellbeing of communities require a new generation of public health
professionals to utilize the robust Public Health strategies to positively change individual health behaviors, motivate organizational/health
system changes, initiate pragmatic health policy actions, as well as encourage robust socio-economic empowerment programs to improve
health outcome. With the recent refocus on Primary Health Care (PHC) as the key to reducing the global disease burden and improving the
general health conditions of the people, particularly in developing countries, our public health programme provides students the
opportunity to examine environmental issues, access to health care services, health policies, and social and contextual determinants of
health and wellbeing.


   History of the Department of Public Health
   Babcock University is the first university in Nigeria, and indeed Africa to offer the first Bachelor of Science degree in
Public Health. At inception, the Department of Nursing and Community Health was created to offer three major programmes:
Bachelor of Science in Public Health, Bachelor of Nursing Science, and Bachelor of Medical Laboratory Science. The
Bachelor of Laboratory Science was put on hold. Later, the Department became Department of Health Sciences. Today, it is a
standalone Department in the School of Public and Allied Health offering two programs: Bachelor of Science in Public Health
(since 1999) and Bachelor of Social Work (since 2009).
   MISSION STATEMENT
   Our Mission as Christian health professional is to promote and restore health and wholeness to all people through teaching, research
and community service.


   GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
     Our goal is to reflect the overarching mission and goal of the Seventh-day Adventist Philosophy of education as upheld by Babcock
University, which traditionally emphasizes the balanced and harmonious development of the whole man in his physical, social and

                                                                      3
   spiritual environment, as specified in the Bulletin. These goal and objectives are expressed within the following domains: Intellectual,
   Occupational, Aesthetic, Physical, Social and Spiritual.
The specifics of the goals and objectives are clearly stated in the Babcock University Bulletin,. However, each program in the department will
achieve the corporate goals of the Institution through its special perspective as a composite of the grand emphasis on ‘Health for All.’


      VALUES
       As we seek to develop high academic and professional competence in our students, we also desire to integrate Christian values in
   preparing them as health care professionals, in harmony with our conviction of what Christian education should be, to appreciate the
   meaning of the full restoration of dignity, integrity, value and self-worth to mankind. Therefore, in developing professional skills in our
   students, we hold in high esteem the following values:
          1. Magnanimity and Prudence;
          2. Beneficence of God - who provides all resources in Love;
          3. Honesty;
          4. Equity - all are created equal and should be treated with due consideration;
          5. Respect – for the beliefs, values and culture of others;
          6. Dignity of labour - as it is appointed unto us to serve humanity;
          7. Essence of true knowledge - all truth is God’s truth;
          8. Integrity - matching faith with action;
          9. Right attitude; and
          10. Faith - man’s response to receive that which God provides for him.

practices are hinged. A brief study of physiological basis of behavior would feature to show the relationship between issues such as neuro-
physiology and learning process in the dynamics of behavior. Specific health behavior models are presented to illustrate issues and
situations to clarify specific psychological/behavioral actions. Specific examples are cited to illustrate the dynamics of change processes
