What is Public Health?

Public health professionals work to improve the health and well-being of entire communities. Whereas a clinical health professional might treat an elderly diabetic patient, a public health professional works to understand and reduce a particular community's elevated risk for diabetes.

The Public Health Program at Hunter College

Part of Hunter's School of Urban Public Health (UPH), students in the Public Health (PH) program develop the skills needed to effectively answer a vast array of public health questions regarding disease, violence, and healthcare through a social justice lens. Fall 2020, the major name was changed from Community Health (COMHE) to Public Health (PH.)

The Public Health program offers a BS in Public Health and a Minor in Public Health.
