The name of our program, Maternal and Child Health, may suggest that we focus only on mothers and children. But we are dedicated to improving the health of youth and families, too. We are especially interested in socially vulnerable populations and the environments, behaviors, and policies that affect their long-term health and well being.
Our students come from a variety of backgrounds, but share a common interest in social justice and public health principles. Our graduates quickly assume leadership roles in non-profit organizations, research settings, state and local public health agencies, and healthcare organizations.
Our program has a standard, on-campus curriculum (with the option of an epidemiology emphasis) and an online curriculum.
Thank you for considering our program and the University of Minnesota. We look forward to receiving an application from you.
