Public Health Graduate Programs

Learn how to apply public health theory and research to ensure the health and longevity of diverse types of communities. Hofstra University’s public health graduate programs offer an interdisciplinary and advanced curriculum to shape you into an innovative, equity-minded public health professional who can work in community, government, and private sectors. The coursework interconnects public health with other disciplines such as business, law, psychology, and public administration, to give you a holistic understanding and skill set that you can apply to your profession. The public health program includes three different degree/certificate options: a master’s degree, an advanced certificate, and a dual degree paired with either a law degree (JD) or medical degree (MD).


The Hofstra University Master of Public Health program has been accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) for a seven-year term extending through December 31, 2029. CEPH is an independent agency recognized by the United States Department of Education to accredit schools and programs of public health.
