We have now expanded as of July 1 and the school’s International Health and Development program is now based out of GCHB. We are excited to welcome faculty to our department whom we have already been working with through the years. The result of this change makes us one of the largest, deepest, and most diverse departments of community health and behavioral science among the accredited schools of public health.
As always, most of our research and service activities are community-based, working at the grassroots level through communities, clinics, schools, or hospitals to find practical solutions to public health problems, or to implement programs to prevent morbidity and mortality in diverse populations.
We encourage you to learn more about our five academic sections:
Students receiving master’s and doctoral degrees are trained to assess the social and behavioral underpinnings of health problems, implement prevention programs addressing them, and evaluate those programs. The health problems addressed vary widely, including prevention of smoking, obesity, and HIV/AIDS, as do the settings, from developing countries to inner cities in the U.S. Faculty in GCHB are educated in diverse fields, including psychology, sociology, economics, demography, anthropology, communications, epidemiology, medicine, and other fields.
We invite you to look around and learn about the range of our experience and ways we can help you to achieve your academic and professional goals.
Congratulations to all of our graduating students!
