Division of Community Health and Humanities

Graduate Programs

The goal of the graduate programs in Community Health and Humanities is to promote health and improve the quality of life in society by developing an understanding of factors that contribute to health and illness, building the capacity to create change, creating "new" knowledge, sharing and engaging in research in and with the community, and serving as a resource for the community. Programs in Community Health and Humanities draw from several disciplines including economics, epidemiology and biostatistics, health policy, history, medical ethics, public health, and the social sciences. The programs embrace the values of social justice and equity, community engagement, inclusiveness, respect for diversity, and appreciation of different types of evidence.
Graduates of the community health and humanities program will have skills and knowledge in health promotion, health care systems and policy development, research ethics, research methods, and the factors that contribute to health. They are able to critically appraise and use evidence to develop and implement interventions, and conduct research with an interdisciplinary "team".

The Division offers the following thesis and non-thesis based graduate programs:
