University of North Carolina at Charlotte
The public health program in the Department of Public Health Sciences at UNC Charlotte, North Carolina’s urban research institution, offers the BSPH and MSPH degree as well as a public health minor (undergraduate) and a graduate certificate in community health.
Through a balance of research and professional practice perspectives, students develop specialized skills to assess health behavior and to design, deliver and evaluate health promotion and risk prevention and reduction services.
The practicum (internship), which provides students with the opportunity to synthesize and apply basic knowledge and skills while functioning in community health settings, and capstone (thesis or project for graduate students; portfolio and career skill building for undergraduates) experiences are an integral component of the BSPH and MSPH program curricula
Guided by input from the greater Charlotte community, the instructional programs are designed to meet the needs of an increasingly diverse student body and public health workforce.
