The Public Health program at St. John’s University - the first of its kind in Queens, NY - was created to address the urgent need and demand for public health professionals and to meet the challenges of public health in regional, national, and global communities. This program continues the Vincentian tradition at St. John’s to address poverty and social injustice by empowering individuals to work with local and global communities to improve health and protect the public.
Cited as one of the fastest growing professions by the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, public health jobs are in greater demand as the global community faces potential pandemics, HIV/AIDS and disasters, while the national community faces staggering rates of non-communicable diseases, increasing health care costs, and health disparities.
Offered through the College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, the 45-credit program, leading to a Master of Public Health (MPH) degree, offers two areas of concentration in either community health or global health, and is built to meet the educational demands of both recent graduates and working professionals.
