Graduate Program in Public Health
The Lehman College Master of Public Health (MPH) Program prepares students for professional careers in the health field as practitioners and researchers. Students will also be prepared to continue in graduate studies to pursue doctoral degrees. The MPH Program has been designed to meet the standards for accreditation by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH). In addition to the core and track competencies required in an MPH Program, the Lehman College MPH Program offers two specializations:
- Community-based Public Health with a focus on health equity.
- Public Health Geographic Information Sciences
The mission of the Lehman College Master of Public Health Program is to address the critical need for public health services in the Bronx and surrounding communities where poor socioeconomic conditions exacerbate inequalities in health status and healthcare. The program is dedicated to promoting values that foster a commitment to addressing the needs of a diverse population, particularly the underserved. The educational, research, and service goals of the program reflect a commitment to community engagement in the development of public health programs and policies. The Lehman College MPH Program Advisory Board serves to promote community participation and leadership in the public health academic program and fulfillment of its mission.
