Public Health - PhD in Human Services


Return to: PhD in Human Services  

In the Public Health specialization, students will address the critical public health issues impacting their communities today and will explore the role that health promotion plays in creating positive social change. Students will engage in an epidemiological approach to the study of disease and injury in populations, and how to apply this study to the control of public health problems. They will examine the social, behavioral, and cultural factors that impact public health and explore the chemical, physical, and biological hazards that can affect the health and safety of a community. And they will gain the key strategies needed for effectively organizing and conducting population-based disease prevention and health promotion programs.
