The curriculum explores public health with a distinct focus on health equity. While students learn the general principles and practices of public health, they also learn to address structural determinants of health often situated in historical systems of oppression.

The program explores the following core areas of public health:

  • Epidemiology
  • Biostatistics
  • Health policy and health services
  • Environmental health
  • Social and behavioral health

Students in the program complete a health equity change project in which they explore public health inequities in or near their communities and work proactively with local partners to address them. Students also gain hands-on field experience at two immersions — one held at the Simmons campus and one in another domestic or international city.
