Degree Program


The Master of Public Health program is rooted in Brown’s tradition of academic excellence and innovative collaboration across disciplines. In fact, the field of public health is much like Brown itself: grounded in interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary synergies and focused on service to populations.

Public health is a discipline devoted to preventing disease and promoting health in the human population. The threats challenging the health of the public include a variety of acute and chronic diseases and conditions including AIDS, addiction, obesity, and aging and some pervasive conditions based on gender, race, socioeconomics, and level of education. Graduate study in public health at Brown has a singular purpose: to train leaders in public health who are armed with the skills to conduct research, bring about policy change, and positively affect the health of populations.
