The master’s degree is a two-year, full-time program focusing on the elimination of local health care disparities, and development of local community health intervention and educational programs.
Students spend the first year in the classroom while simultaneously developing individual research projects with a faculty advisor. The second year is dedicated to research projects and elective courses. Although not required, students are encouraged to seek internships and other research opportunities during their course of study to gain hands-on experience of the public health field.
Located in central North Carolina, Campbell is an ideal setting for the program’s focus on rural health disparities and community outreach. Students and faculty work closely with Harnett County’s health department and health systems to assess and evaluate local health disparities.
The public health program also partners with Campbell University’s physician assistant, pharmacy and osteopathic medicine programs to conduct collaborative research and implement community programs.
