Public Health (Ph.D.)

Public Health graduate students at UC Merced advance their careers by pursuing a research-based Ph.D. Our diverse faculty training students to conduct transdisciplinary, community-based research to address health issues that areimportant to vulnerable populations in rural areas. 

Some examples of current research areas include chronic disease prevention, reducing health disparities, environmental health, Latino health, cancer, and health promotion and behavior change. These areas of study are part of our emphasis in Prevention Sciences, a transdisciplinary course of study that gives students the skills and training they need to address pressing public health problems.
