Founded in 1961, the Graduate Center of the City University of New York (CUNY) is devoted primarily to doctoral study and awards most of CUNY's doctoral degrees. An internationally recognized center for advanced studies and a national model for public doctoral education, the Graduate Center offers over thirty doctoral programs in the arts, humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences, as well as a number of health sciences doctorates and master's programs.
Also affiliated with the institution are four University Center programs: the CUNY Baccalaureate Program through which undergraduates can earn bachelor's degrees by taking courses at any of the CUNY colleges; the CUNY School of Professional Studies and the associated Joseph S. Murphy Institute for Worker Education and Labor Studies; the recently established CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, which offers a master's degree in journalism; and Macaulay's Honor College.
The Doctoral Program in Public Health prepares students to lead public health agencies, programs, and initiatives; develop and evaluate intervention programs; plan and implement policies to improve the health of urban populations; lead research studies; and teach public health and related subjects in colleges and universities. The Graduate Center awards the Doctor of Public Health (DPH) degree and offers an interdisciplinary curriculum with a focus on urban health.
