The public health profession focuses on preventing disease, addressing inequities and developing policies and programs that help communities achieve optimal health and wellbeing. Our program aims to educate and empower the emerging generation of public health leaders.


Our classes offer students the breadth and depth of concepts and skills needed for success as public health professionals and for further study. Students undertake internships and other practical experiences - in Washington, around the region, and around the world. Our graduates go on to work in public health agencies, nonprofit organizations, and corporations. Many pursue graduate programs in public health and other disciplines, including law and social work, as well as medicine and other health professions.
