Public Health: Community & Behavioral Health Promotion PhD

Format: Campus

Program Description:

Students entering the program will be trained at the graduate level in health promotion and behavior change from a public health perspective. Focus areas of coursework and research include maternal, infant, and child health, adolescent health, teen parents, health disparities, obesity, nutrition, food security, HIV and STDs, adolescent health, substance abuse, mental health, and built environment. Students will also have exposure to other key areas of public health (environmental health, epidemiology, biostatistics, and policy and administration), which allows them to be integrated into the broader public health profession upon graduation. Studying public health at UW-Milwaukee will allow for opportunities to apply doctoral research to real-world settings. CBHP PhD graduates will be well-prepared scientist-practitioners, able to lead interdisciplinary research and work with a range of communities on our most pressing population health issues. Demand for public health professionals is high in local, state, and federal government, academia, and within non-governmental and community-based organizations across the United States and around the world. This PhD program will prepare students to work in these sectors and more.
