Course Offerings

Students in the Health and the Public Interest program have the flexibility of designing their own schedules and taking electives with the course offerings provided. Our program is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to address some of the most pressing public health challenges facing our communities today. Through a multidisciplinary curriculum, our students learn to apply critical thinking and problem-solving skills to the complex issues facing public health and the health of populations. We place a strong emphasis on the importance of understanding the social determinants of health and the role of health equity in improving the health of populations. Through our courses and capstone experience, students learn about the impact of poverty, race, and other social factors on health outcomes and gain the skills to develop strategies to address these issues.
