Change the World, Your Way
The Colorado School of Public Health (ColoradoSPH) is one of the only tri-institutional public health schools in the country. We leverage the power of three leading institutions —the University of Northern Colorado (UNC), the University of Colorado (CU) Anschutz Medical Campus, and Colorado State University (CSU)— to advance public health locally, nationally, and globally. Each of our three universities offer different programs and cultures.
Building Community Connections to Address Public Health Challenges
Maximize your opportunities for community engagement with the ColoradoSPH at UNC. We offer a Master of Public Health in Community Health Education--with the option to add an emphasis in global public health—as well as Certificates in Rural Public Health and Public Health Sciences. Students learn to work effectively with diverse communities, identify needs and strengths, and promote health. Faculty specialize in sexual and reproductive health, Native American health, obesity and chronic diseases, substance use prevention, harm reduction, participatory action research, and more.
ColoradoSPH at UNC believes in blending research and practice by applying knowledge in the real world, in real time, to improve health. UNC has a Carnegie Foundation's Classification for Community Engagement—reflecting the opportunities students have to apply classroom learning in the community. MPH and certificate students engage in local community health organization and initiatives such as the Weld County Department of Health and Environment, UNC’s Center for Peer Education, Imagine Zero coalition for suicide prevention, and the Sexual Assault Victim Advocate (SAVA) Center.
