The School of Community and Population Health is dedicated to advancing public health knowledge and practice in local 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 research and evaluation specializing in the areas of chronic disease prevention, community-based participatory research, infectious disease, maternal and child health, community health assessment, global health and tobacco control.
We offer a Bachelor of Science degree in public health which imparts the skills necessary for understanding the complexity of health issues that affect communities and identifying potential solutions to address them. Benefitting from small class sizes, access to professional conferences, leading experts and one-on-one engagement with experienced faculty, you will learn how to work collaboratively with stakeholders and to communicate complex concepts to diverse audiences.
UNE also offers an online Master’s degree 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 with other students.
