Public Health Electives

The NYU MPH curriculum includes elective requirements to enhance individual learning plans. Elective courses can be used to provide greater depth in an area of interest, explore new public health concepts or gain additional skill sets. Below are elective courses open to all MPH students who have met identified prerequisite requirements. Students may take electives within his/her area of concentration or outside of it. With advisor approval, MPH students may also select a graduate level course outside of the MPH program, taking advantage of the rich academic offerings across the university. Students work with their advisor in selecting elective courses based on individualized professional and educational needs.
