Skip Navigation LinksSpecialty Areas in the Department

This specialty area is for students interested in building healthy and well-functioning communities. They may do so through public service (e.g., AmeriCorps, Peace Corps) or as a career following graduate study in an appropriate field such as public health, public policy, law, rehabilitation, psychology, social welfare, and medicine. It provides opportunities for learning and service to better understand and make a difference with important community problems and goals (e.g., substance abuse, violence, education, child and youth development, independent living of people with disabilities, well-being of older adults).
