At Hunter College’s School of Urban Public Health (UPH), students learn to contribute to improving urban health by addressing issues such as HIV, substance abuse, asthma, obesity, nutrition, violence, heart disease, and cancer. The School offers a BS in Community Health, a BS and accelerated BS-MS in Nutrition & Food Science, and an MS in Nutrition.
UPH is located at the Hunter College Silberman campus, 2180 Third Avenue (at 119th St.) in East Harlem, where we share our modern "green" building with the Silberman School of Social Work. Faculty, staff, and students from both schools work closely with local and regional community organizations as well as health and social service agencies to strengthen existing and create new approaches to improving the well-being of communities. The Nutrition programs offer students opportunities to participate in faculty research.
