Tulane University


The solution to many of today's public health problems requires some type of behavioral change. Increasingly, health practitioners are looking to the field of health education and health communication for methods to adapt behavioral science principles to the solution of selected health problems. The Tulane University School of Public Health & Tropical Medicine program is designed to prepare graduates to work in the challenging fields of health promotion and disease prevention, with a focus on health education program planning, monitoring and evaluation, community organization, social marketing, and qualitative and quantitative community based participatory research methodologies. An MPH in the Health Education and Communication (HEDC) concentration provides those interested in working within the United States, and in developing countries, the opportunity to develop these learning experiences.
