Women's and Gender Studies at the University of Memphis is an academic program that
focuses on scholarship of women and gender, and how we think about race, class, sexuality
and social inequality. Our interdisciplinary program offers an undergraduate minor,
a graduate certificate, and a Master of Arts degree.The Master of Arts degree allows
students to choose a concentration in Inequality and Social Policy, or Cultural Studies.
Within each concentration, faculty work with students to design an individualized
academic program to fit student needs and interests. Our graduate degree program also
includes thesis and non-thesis options.http://www.memphis.edu/wmst/certificate.htm
Public Health Degree Programs
The Master of Public Health Program at the University of Memphis integrates academic
rigor with real world solutions to promote healthy communities and environments, prevent
chronic disease, and protect against disease spread. Located in the metropolitan
mid-South, where substantial health disparities exist, our focus addresses urban health
concerns and advocacy for the underserved. The program enjoys a close working relationship
with the Memphis and Shelby County Health Department, where monthly roundtables bridge
the gap between academic study and the practice of public health.
We offer a 42-credit hour MPH degree in five concentration areas: Biostatistics, Environmental
Health, Epidemiology, Health Systems Management, and Social and Behavioral Science.
Students may also opt for a general MPH degree. Our program accommodates the needs
of working professionals, with all courses offered in the evening. The MPH practicum
requirement is fulfilled at the Health Department, where students work with preceptors
on projects related to infant mortality, tobacco control, obesity prevention, promotion
of breastfeeding, pollution control, water quality, social determinants of health,
HIV/AIDS risk reduction, immigrant and refugee health, tuberculosis control, or emergency
preparedness. Students also complete a capstone project, which takes the form of
either a thesis or Masters Project option. http://www.memphis.edu/sph/mph/index.php
