The Community Health Sciences specialization of North Dakota State University’s Master of Public Health program is designed for health professionals who are interested in strengthening their biomedical knowledge and skills in applying public health principles for enhancing the health of communities. It is excellent for pharmacists, nurses, physicians and other health professionals involved in all levels (primary, secondary and tertiary) of disease and health risk prevention efforts.
The specialization prepares practitioners for diverse roles in assessing, designing and evaluating public health interventions in conjunction with interprofessional health teams and health-care systems. Students will learn how to engage their community with sensitivity to the social context, and to plan, implement and assess the outcomes of public health interventions at the individual, family, community or systems levels.
