Master's Programs

 

Mailman School of Public Health
MPH Program and Health of an Aging Society Certificate

As part of the Mailman School’s innovative Master of Public Health (MPH) curriculum, students in the departments of Sociomedical Sciences, Populations and Family Health, Environmental Health Sciences, Epidemiology, and Health Policy & Management are eligible to complete a certificate in the Health of an Aging Society.  The certificate offers graduates an ecological approach to aging and comparative and interdisciplinary perspectives on aging in societies.  As an aging society is often framed as a negative problem, the curriculum will consider ways to frame a rights-oriented perspective to policies and programs for older persons.
