Graduate educational programs in the Brown University School of Public Health build upon the University’s student-directed open curriculum as well as the resources of the School's 12 public health research centers and institutes. Reflecting the evolving needs of the health care workforce, all degree programs include opportunities to "learn public health by doing public health."
The low student-to-faculty ratio fosters a supportive learning environment distinguished by interdisciplinary collaboration. The faculty are active researchers who bring experiences from the field into the classroom. Students have opportunities to conduct research with faculty in the School, as well as those across the University, in the Brown Affiliated Hospitals, the Rhode Island Department of Health, and in our network of global public health organizations.
The educational programs offered at the School of Public Health include the MPH Program; master of science degrees in biostatistics, epidemiology and behavioral and social health sciences; and doctoral programs in epidemiology, biostatistics, behavioral and social health sciences, and health services research.
