MPH graduates are currently serving as public health practitioners and leaders in New Jersey and far beyond, in a diverse array of settings.  Recent graduates of our program are employed at: local and state health departments; the American Red Cross; the Y; the NJ Veteran’s Administration; hospitals (in NY, NJ, and California); corporate settings; university research centers; and various community organizations.

Our students represent a wide variety of backgrounds, ages, and interests, from as local as Montclair, to as far away as Afghanistan, South Africa, and Indonesia.  They hail from undergraduate backgrounds in public health, anthropology, psychology, biology, nutrition, communications, sociology, marketing, and more.   

We offer both part-time and full-time options. Students complete 42 credit hours of coursework, including the five core disciplines of public health: epidemiology, health policy, social and behavioral sciences, biostatistics, and environmental health; and in the specific concentration of community health education.

With a focus on social justice, our graduates are committed to eliminating “health disparities,” that is, differences in health status between the rich and poor, and among different ethnic and cultural groups.  Students apply public health principles and methods to address critical real-world challenges such as: tobacco use, violence, HIV, poor diet and physical inactivity, injuries, environmental hazards, sexual health, maternal and child health, mental health, immigrant health, and access to preventive and curative health services.  

Our faculty is recognized for excellence in both teaching and research.  We are passionate about mentoring students and preparing future generations of public health leaders. With grants from the federal government (National Institutes of Health), local government (NJ Department of Health), and several different philanthropic foundations, our faculty members are currently conducting research on a wide variety of topics.

Applications will be accepted for the Fall 2014 semester until March 1st. We hope you will consider joining us as we work to improve the lives and health of communities in and outside of New Jersey.
