The Health Promotion and Health Behavior program at Oregon State University offers exciting opportunities for graduate studies, within Oregon’s first accredited College of Public Health and Human Sciences.

The HPHB curriculum addresses social and behavioral influences on health, with special attention to communities experiencing health disparities. Doctoral students collaborate with world-class faculty members on interdisciplinary, community-engaged research spanning a variety of areas including cancer prevention, tobacco, sexual health, and environmental factors in health promotion. They conduct basic (etiology) research, intervention research, and research on the translation of public health programs to real world settings (implementation science).

The program offers access to excellent research and teaching opportunities, tailored mentoring, and a strong history of funding students. Most students are funded through teaching or graduate research assistantships, which include tuition remission and a stipend; others are funded through scholarships and fellowships.

Recent graduates have gone on to prestigious post-doctoral and tenure-track faculty positions, as well as positions in industry and government.
