The Public Health Program teaches five core disciplines of public health: Biostatistics, Epidemiology, Environmental Health Science, Health Policy and Management, and Social and Behavioral Sciences. Also, students gain depth through coursework in a chosen specialized public health concentration in either Community Action for Health or Global Health and Health Equity and Criminal Justice. Students complete their Culminating Experience through a field study internship integrating core sills and knowledge acquired through the Program’s didactic phase in a public health setting with one of our many well-established collaborative partnerships. Partnerships include local departments of health, community organizations and non-governmental organizations engaged in public health activities or international institutions in Bolivia, Cambodia, and Ethiopia. Lastly, students complete the Capstone Course choosing an applied project which consists of a formal written manuscript and public presentation; or a comprehensive exam demonstrating their mastery and ability to integrate and apply core public health principles to issues that may confront public health professionals.
