Community Health Promotion

Build healthier communities. Change the world.

The Community Health Promotion MPH program at the University of Minnesota School of Public Health trains students to work with populations to improve health. Our curriculum emphasizes the importance of using research and social science to assess population behavioral health patterns and psychosocial risk factors; design community-wide prevention and intervention programs; influence health policies; and evaluating outcomes of behavioral health change.
