Community Health Education
The Community Health Education program in the University of Massachusetts Amherst School of Public Health and Health Sciences prepares public health professionals to design and implement programs to assist all people to participate in their life situations to the fullest extent of their capabilities. As part of the Department of Health Promotion and Policy, the Community Health Education program offers a range of degrees including:
- Master of Public Health (M.P.H.)
- Master of Science (M.S.)
- Accelerated 4+1 MPH Degree Program

Community Health Education enables people to gain control over the social, political, and personal conditions that affect their health. Community health educators are on the frontlines of this nation’s efforts to reduce health disparities and improve quality of life.
