What degree is required to work in the Center for Disease Control's Office of Health and Safety (OHS)?

I will be entering college in the Fall. I plan on majoring in Biology on a pre-veterinary medicine track. However, I am also interested in one day working for the CDC in their OHS; this is a public health area. Would a Biology degree be sufficient enough to work at the CDC or would I need to pursue a public health major/minor? #college #graduate #majors-and-minors

Ameena’s Answer

I worked at the CDC without having a degree in Public Health. My MPH was after I left CDC. However, I had a Master of Science and a PhD when I joined the CDC to do some molecular work on Malaria pathogens. I would suggest first obtaining a degree in Biology with coursework that interests you and keep it broad within the major. You can always get on the job training or go to graduate school later.
