The CUNY Graduate School of Public Health and Health Policy (CUNY SPH) offers master’s and doctoral degree programs that prepare students to meet the public health challenges of the 21st century. The school emphasizes interdisciplinary approaches to solving complex health problems by analyzing their causes at multiple levels of organization (such as individual, family, community, city, and nation) and planning interventions that address these levels of influence.

CUNY SPH recognizes the importance of culture and community and seeks to prepare graduates who can work with diverse populations to achieve common health goals. Courses provide students with up-to-date scientific knowledge so they can translate findings into programs and policies that make a difference. With a focus on urban populations, the curriculum prepares students to understand the health impact of global migration and the many ways that cities around the world can learn from each other to improve public health.
