Welcome to the Department of Health Sciences at the Bouvé College of Health Sciences at Northeastern University. Our department provides a unique, trans-disciplinary setting that incorporates academics, research and practice and prepares students for a wide range of career paths. We offer an engaging undergraduate academic program in Health Sciences as well as graduate degree programs, including the Master of Public Health, concentrating in urban health, and Master of Science in Exercise Science with a concentration in Physical Activity and Public Health.
Our diverse faculty has expertise in the fields of population health, health disparities, nutritional epidemiology, social epidemiology, exercise science, medical sociology, public policy, personal health technologies, neurodevelopmental disorders, and mental health. Students have the opportunity to work side-by-side with faculty in conducting cutting edge research in these fields. We also have research staff highly skilled in providing unique, specialized dietary assessment services.
In line with Northeastern's commitment to interdisciplinary research and urban engagement, we teach and work closely with many other schools, centers and departments in the University, including the Institute on Urban Health Research (IUHR), the Center for Community Health Education Research and Service (CCHERS), and our NIH funded Center for Population Health and Health Disparities (CPHHD), as well as community agencies and neighborhood health centers in the local Boston area.
