Coursework and Curriculum in the CUNY DPH Program

In keeping with the interdisciplinary focus of the DPH program, all students are required to take public health courses within a specialization area, additional courses in research methods, theory or public health practice, and at least one doctoral course outside of public health. Course selection is determined through consultation between the student and the advisor. If a DPH course is cross-listed with another GC program, that course can count toward the interdisciplinary requirement.

Students are required to complete the core DPH courses, track-specific course requirements, advanced research seminars and dissertation research.

We are in the process of applying for approvals of a reduction in the number of credits associated with the dissertation of 12 to 0, for a total of 48.
