Experiential learning is a hallmark of Drexel University. The School of Public Health provides hands-on opportunities for students and faculty, coupled with the rigor of an incredibly high quality academic environment. Because of our unique community-collaborative approach to education, our graduates leave the Drexel University School of Public Health—founded as a "school without walls"—having already made a meaningful difference in thousands of lives.
Complementing this experiential focus is a rigorous academic program that provides students with a comprehensive grounding in the five core areas of public health:
- Community Health & Prevention
- Health Management & Policy
- Environmental & Occupational Health
