With a focus on health disparities, students will examine how the characteristics of the urban environment can affect health and well-being. Through innovative coursework and a practicum, the MPH in Urban Public Health concentration will train diverse and skilled professionals who promote and protect the health of urban communities. The Rutgers School of Public Health will be preparing the next generation of urban public health leaders and professionals who promote and protect the health of urban communities by understanding and applying the multiple, fluid, dynamic, intersectional identities of urban populations.
