MPH in Community Health – Revised Curriculum for Fall 2019*
The MPH in Community Health is the social and behavioral sciences arm of the CUNY Graduate School of Public Health and Health Policy’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.
Community health prepares students to plan, manage, and evaluate health programs aimed at reducing social and behavioral threats to community health.
