The School of Community and Population Health is dedicated to advancing public health knowledge and practice in rural and global communities through innovative education, training, research, capacity building and service.
We collaborate with other departments at UNE as well as with local, state, national and global organizations on chronic disease research, program evaluation, community health assessments and health policy research.
UNE also offers an online master's degree program in Public Health through the College of Graduate and Professional Studies. Whether you are a working professional or a traditional student, the distance education format of the program makes it accessible to you anywhere there is a computer with internet access. Through the program, you work with faculty who are experienced public health practitioners, researchers and educators, actively engaging in online discussions, email exchanges and group projects that involve other students.
