PhD in Public Health

Welcome to Baylor University’s PhD in Public Health Degree.

Doctoral students in our PhD in Public Health Degree program choose one of two areas of specialization (concentration) in public health research. Researchers in both specializations apply scientific, systematic, data-driven methods relevant to public health research.

  • Epidemiology

    Researchers in this specialization examine the incidence and prevalence of health problems, health risk, and factors contributing to population health.

  • Social & Behavioral Health Science

    Researchers in this specialization examine how contributing factors at multiple social-ecological levels impact health-related behavior, health status, and quality of life of individuals and populations.
