Learn how to assess population health needs, formulate policies and interventions, and assure the effectiveness of community programs and services.
Through our program, you will integrate an understanding of public health program planning, evaluation and health policy with concepts in epidemiology, biostatistics, environmental health and health behavior.
As a public health administrator, you will be involved with
program planning, implementation, participation, evaluation,

You will be prepared to work in a variety of fields, including:
We offer combined degree programs— MPH/JD, MPH/MBA, MPH/MSW, MPH/MD and MPH/PharmD—where you can earn two degrees in less time and fewer credits than each degree individually. These programs allow you to integrate a prevention- and population-focused approach to health with your respective legal, business, social work, medical or pharmaceutical education.
For College at Brockport students, we have a collaborative BS/MPH program with the college which allows qualified students to complete the equivalent of three years of undergraduate study at Brockport and complete two years of graduate study at UB to earn both degrees.
