The Program in Public Health at Stony Brook is seeking intellectually inquisitive people from different socioeconomic, educational, racial, and ethnic backgrounds who can provide special contributions to the field of public health and the Program. The Program considers the potential contribution of each applicant to the student body and the public health field. Applicants are evaluated on academic achievement, leadership potential, professional accomplishment, and personal attributes. Excellent written and oral communication skills are expected. Fluency in more than one language is not required for admission, but it is becoming increasingly desirable for the practice of public health. The Program reserves the right to limit class size in order to maintain a faculty/student ratio that ensures a high quality academic program. Therefore, Program admission is highly selective, and all qualified applicants may not be accepted.
