Make Connections, Draw Conclusions, and Change the World
Studying public health starts in the classroom, but its impact extends far beyond. That’s why our undergrads aren’t studying communities’ health on the sidelines. They’re taking the lead in research projects on role of climate change on pollution inversions and birth defects. They’re going on community-engaged learning trips to understand the healthcare needs of rural indigenous populations. They’re completing internships at places like the International Rescue Committee.
Who It's For
If you’re ready to learn about the powerful role that social sciences, humanities, and arts play in understanding the health of communities and populations, then you’re ready for a career in public health. Our Public Health program gives each student a big-picture view that goes beyond standard coursework.
We Open Doors—Literally
That’s why on any given day, a professor’s open door might lead you to a spontaneous discussion with a handful of classmates.
