University of Connecticut
The University of Connecticut (UConn) Graduate Program in Public Health offers a Master’s in Public Health degree, a Graduate Certificate in the Foundations of Public Health (CFPH), and an online Public Health Certificate in Interdisciplinary Disability Studies (PHCIDS). With the expanding interest and evolution of public health careers for the 21st century, the program has gradually evolved its mission to emphasize interprofessional education. One in five students study public health concurrently with medicine, dental medicine, pharmacy, law, social work, nursing or public administration. Established dual degree options (MD/MPH, JD/MPH, MSW/MPH and MSN/MPH) have been augmented with additional options (DMD/MPH, PharmD/MPH and a pending MPA/MPH). At UConn, you will find a curriculum that challenges you to consider your role in shaping health services and the environment to benefit health and well-being. An experienced, engaging faculty will provide you with ample opportunity to pursue scholarship and service learning activities where you will acquire skills needed for leadership in the public health field.
