Our program provides an introduction to the history and core concepts of public health and its role in U.S. and international health systems. You will gain knowledge of public health theory and approaches, as well as the skills necessary to apply this knowledge in professional public health roles.
Our highly engaged faculty are involved in a broad range of externally funded public health and health services projects. They are well connected to Maine’s public health leaders, who routinely guest lecture in classes and provide project opportunities for students.
Scholarships offer valuable financial aid that doesn’t need to be repaid. You’ll be automatically considered for Merit Scholarships when you apply for admission by the deadline. Additional opportunities are available.
