As a public health and social work expert, you can make difference in the way poverty affects people in both inner cities and rural communities. In this coordinated degree program, we can give you the skills you need to work in policy and program development, community organizations, research, and teaching.
With the right skill set, we believe you'll have a significant impact. That's why we've designed this program so you can tailor it to meet your needs. After you take your core MPH courses, you'll take 12 credit hours of focus courses in the Maternal and Child Health concentration. Best of all, even though this coordinated degree is offered through the University of Alabama School of Social Work and UAB's School of Public Health, you'll find quite a bit of flexibility in your schedule. You may complete the program online, in class, or through a blended combination of the two.
