Master of Public Policy: Community Health Concentration
Our Master of Public Policy: Community Health concentration prepares graduates to lead government policy and advocacy efforts that advance positive social change in communities. With cities around the world
facing unprecedented population growth, our program trains students to work toward creating urban environments that promote mental health and well-being.
Our innovative program meets the standards of the Higher Learning Commission and offers an academically rigorous curriculum that prepares students to be public policy leaders with a focus on developing,
implementing, and evaluating policy interventions that promote health in urban communities.
We offer a unique policy approach that emphasizes the interconnected sociocultural, physical, economic, and political factors that shape community health. Students focus on the role of participatory governance
and community collaboration to counter urban environmental risk factors and improve overall well-being. Adler University is a recognized pioneer in graduate education, preparing socially responsible practitioners to
address today’s most urgent challenges.
