This track has been designed for students who want to understand the biological, psychosocial, and structural determinants of human health on a population scale. This track is offered in collaboration with the NYU School of Global Public Health (NYU GPH). Students are awarded the Master’s in Biology degree on completion of 36 credits with an average of B (GPA=3.0) or better and a research paper. At least 24 of the credits must be completed in Biology courses or in courses cross-listed with Biology (BIOL-GA). Up to 12 credits can be completed in GPH (GPH-GU). The research paper (also called the Master’s thesis) can be written based on original laboratory research results (laboratory-based thesis) or an in-depth literature study of an area of public health biology (library-based thesis). The thesis can be mentored by a faculty member in Biology or GPH.
