Overview

About Our Facilities

The Public Health program of the University at Buffalo consists of coursework both from Public Health (PUB) and from other departments across the university. The public health courses are delivered in person in a classroom setting. Our faculty use a variety of high quality, learner centered teaching techniques in their courses, including projects, in class and out of class activities, and field trips in addition to lecture. Classes range from large, introductory courses at the first and second year level to smaller, more specialized courses at the third and fourth year level.

About Our Faculty

The core faculty for the undergraduate program in public health come from multiple departments in the School of Public Health and Health Professions. Each faculty member has training in one of the core areas of public health or in a discipline that contributes to the interdisciplinary basis of public health. All of the faculty teaching core courses in the major (PUB prefix courses) have a doctoral degree or equivalent professional degree, or appropriate credentials. No PUB core courses are currently taught by teaching assistants.
