About

The Public Health program at University of Miami is a professional degree for students who seek a broad, general academic experience in public health. Students will acquire competency in the fundamental public health disciplines. 

Overview

This includes research design and conduct, data analysis and policy analysis, communications, program planning and administration, public health systems and the organization of health services in the United States and Latin America, recognition and analysis of ethical issues in public health and professional practice, the needs of special populations and the integration of these core disciplines in public health decision making.

Students in the Public Health program at University of Miami take core courses and select electives from among the five divisions allowing the flexibility to either focus on one or more public health areas depending on academic and professional goals. The program culminates with a Capstone Project in which students apply public health fieldwork and academic theory to a project with a public health impact.
