Hofstra’s Graduate Community Health program prepares students for careers in community/public health settings with an emphasis on content and skills for designing and implementing health promotion and disease prevention programs and services in culturally diverse settings. The program builds upon social science theories and intervention strategies that are individual, community and policy-based. The curriculum includes courses on community needs assessment, program delivery and evaluation, community health advocacy, environmental health, and epidemiology. With guidance from faculty, students conduct internships in regional community-based organizations where they learn how to apply the program planning, implementation and evaluation skills they learned throughout the program. Specialized health courses may be taught by adjunct faculty from the community health field.
