NYU Announces Masterís Program in Global Public Health
Concentration Offered in Oral/Dental Public Health

New York University has launched a unique new MS Program, the Master of Public Health Program in Global Public Health. All students will share a common core curriculum and choose from four areas of concentration to develop the advanced skills and knowledge they need. One area of concentration is oral/dental public health, which focuses on the global implications and impact of oral public health policy, administration and research. Dr. Gustavo D. Cruz, Assistant Professor of Epidemiology & Health Promotion and Director of Public Health and Health Promotion, directs the curriculum in oral/dental public health.

The Master of Public Health Program in Global Public Health is a multidisciplinary program that aims to set a new standard in public health education to meet a global challenge. The program is not housed in a specific school; it draws on the best of the Universityís resources, bringing together multiple disciplines and professions. It is the first degree to be offered through a unique collaboration among five of NYUís professional schools: School of Medicine, College of Dentistry, with its College of Nursing, School of Social Work, Wagner Graduate School of Public Service, and Steinhardt School of Education. Faculty members from the NYU School of Law and the Faculty of Arts and Science are also participating.

Full-time and part-time tracks are available. For more information, please visit the programís Web site at www.nyu.edu/mph.
