What to Expect
In your first year of our program, your graduate-level coursework will focus on fundamental Master of Public Health topics, including history, philosophy and statistical methods, as well as courses related to a chosen concentration:
- Population Health Research
- Global Health
- Health Policy and Management
- Health Promotion and Disease Prevention
- Health Informatics
During your second year, you'll primarily take Master of Social Work courses at the Mandel School with subjects focused on theories of human development and human diversity, community theory and practice and other social-work-based curricula.
Then, you'll move beyond the classroom by applying your knowledge and skills of social work and public health in agency settings through field education and practicum opportunities while simultaneously completing your remaining social work coursework and electives and a public health capstone experience.
