Program Description

The Master of Public Health program is a two-year program which draws on the unique strengths of Cornell University’s multiple colleges and prepares its graduates for careers as public health leaders. The program equips students to combine knowledge of human, environmental, animal and agricultural health for a One Health approach to addressing public health needs. Students may select from two concentration areas: Infectious Disease Epidemiology, and Food Systems for Health, both of which draw on the expertise of Cornell’s College of Veterinary Medicine, College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, and College of Human Ecology, along with instruction from the School of Industrial and Labor Relations and the Johnson Graduate School of Management. This multidisciplinary approach equips graduates with the core competencies necessary to lead public health initiatives at the municipal, state, national, and international levels.
