The MPH in Behavioral, Social and Community Health (BSCH) trains students in the behavioral, social, and cultural factors that affect the health outcomes of individuals and communities. You will learn about the determinants of health and how to design, implement, and evaluate effective health behavior change interventions in the community. The BSCH concentration provides you with opportunities in coursework and real-world experiences to build the skills and knowledge you need to be a leader in the public or private sector.
Students in the BSCH concentration often begin their graduate career with a deep passion about a specific population or health issue. Students find faculty mentors to support study in diverse populations and public health challenges. If you are interested in exploring "why are some people healthy and others are not" and want to make in difference in health equity, the BSCH concentration will provide the training you need to be a leader in public health practice.
