Behavioral Science and Community Health Program Information


Social & Behavioral Sciences

The PhD in Public Health-Social and Behavioral Sciences (SBS) Track is targeted to individuals who wish to develop advanced knowledge and skills in the social and behavioral sciences theories and methods used in public health. Training is designed for those who desire public health careers in research, academics, government, or related health organizations. A prior graduate degree in public health or a related field is strongly preferred.

The program is focused upon the assumption that health and health behavior are impacted by multiple psychological, behavioral, social, and cultural factors. Central to addressing health problems and eliminating health disparities and inequalities, these factors must be understood and addressed at multiple social-ecological levels (individual, interpersonal, organizational, community, and population).

PhD students who concentrate in social and behavioral sciences explore the unique issues faced by diverse groups and populations and acquire skills to achieve social and behavioral change.
