MPH in Community Health Education is the social and behavioral sciences arm of the CUNY School of Public Health’s MPH degree program. The program is designed to help students develop the competencies they will need to promote health in urban communities—competencies in assessment, community engagement, program development, grant writing, research, and evaluation. The program focuses on the social determinants of disease and health inequalities with a corresponding emphasis on structural theories of change, informed by social justice principles. Graduates work in a variety of organizations across public and nonprofit sectors in New York and beyond, including service, advocacy and health care organizations. Credits: 45
