Our summer institute offers short, intensive courses that provide students with an understanding of behavioral and societal impacts on public health—and specific strategies to address the challenges they present.

Courses may be taken for academic credit or on a non-credit basis.

During the 2016 Summer Institute—which will take place May 23 - June 24, 2016—we will offer two courses that include general overviews of social and behavioral science issues in public health, including discussion of the social, contextual, and individual influences on risk behaviors and interventions that modify these influences. Courses also will be offered on knowledge management for public health in low and middle-income countries and qualitative research methods, as well as a course on evaluating the impact of health communication interventions and one on evaluating workplace health promotion programs. 

Registration for 2016 Summer Institute courses opens February 12, 2016. For more information on courses and registration, contact Barbara Diehl at
