Public Health Programs

Learning about academic programs offering various degrees in Public Health are found in several sources.

About Public Health

The Program in Public Health reflects a number of disciplines and academic interests, many with significant intersections between medicine, epidemiology, disease prevention, health care, environmental sciences, food sciences & nutrition, demography & sociology, education, gender studies, anthropology, Housing, Geography and many other relevant areas.  There are also many professional areas and specific applications represented and includes planning, forecasting, GIS, etc. 

The library collections are to support instruction and current research efforts by faculty and graduate students and the diverse undergraduate programs and the global coverage of relevant issues.  They include books, journals, conference papers, government information, data sets, films & multimedia, grey literature and are found in all formats.  Always growing, the collections are expanding in scope and depth.  This website is a sitemap of how to find and use some of these resources.

Many of the resources listed in this Guide reflect international contributions from a variety of sources in a wide range of subjects.  The emphasis on international development from many different vantage points is the intention of much of this compilation of resources.  It is recommended to use the "Subject Coverage" tab to find additional topical concentrations and resources, and to comprehensively explore the guide by clicking through it.  Of course, it is a work in progress and with your input, will better support your needs.
