Master of Public Health (MPH) Program

Minor in Public Health

The minor in Public Health** is targeted to students majoring in the traditional liberal arts who might be interested in pursuing a health career either by applying to a graduate program in public health or applying for employment in the health field.  The health field continues to be a growing sector of the economy.    This minor adds coursework in public health to the options liberal arts students have to enter the health field.  In addition, the Public Health minor will benefit students who major in liberal arts who upon graduation wish to apply to the new Lehman College Masters in Public Health.
