Since 1976, Boston University’s School of Public Health has been growing, innovating, discovering and launching the careers of some of the most accomplished and influential women and men in the field. Today we stand among a select group of public health graduate schools.
An outstanding feature of our 19-degree programs and eight dual degree programs is the integration of classroom education, research and field experience. Students at all academic levels assist faculty members in a wide range of public health research. Our skills-based curriculum, practicum program and extensive community-based service programs prepare them for careers in research, industry, government and academia.
With a rare concentration of top hospitals, medical research, science and technology, and health-related companies and agencies, Boston offers an outstanding backdrop for the study of public health. Students immerse themselves in this tailor-made learning environment through fieldwork, networking and engagement with public health lectures and events.
