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