About the School

School of Urban Public Health is a consortial partner and the lead institution in the CUNY School of Public Health (SPH). The CUNY SPH comprises public health degree programs at Brooklyn College, Hunter College, Lehman College and the Graduate School and University Center (Graduate Center) of CUNY.  Within the CUNY SPH, teaching, research and service are focused on four broad inter-related goals that reflect major health challenges in the current era:

1) creating healthier cities

2) promoting healthy aging through the lifespan

3) preventing chronic diseases and improving their management

4) promoting health equity

The programs in public health at the CUNY SPH educate public health professionals to promote health and prevent disease among urban populations. These programs prepare students to work with the diverse populations living in cities, and to serve in a variety of settings in government, non-profit organizations, businesses and communities.

With the Graduate Center, the CUNY SPH at Hunter College offers a doctor of public health (DPH) degree, with specializations in community, society and health, epidemiology, environmental and occupational health and public health policy and management. The DPH degree program is described in the Graduate Center website www.gc.cuny.edu/Doctoral students in some CUNY Graduate Center PhD programs, including sociology and psychology, can also earn an MPH while pursuing their doctorate.
