Undergraduate Concentrations

An academic concentration at Brown is an in-depth study centering on one or more disciplines, a problem or theme, or a broad question.

The School of Public Health supports two undergraduate concentrations: Public Health (A.B.) and Statistics (Sc.B.).

The Undergraduate Concentration (major) in Public Health examines patterns of — and explanations for — population health and disease, health policy, cross-cultural and international aspects of health, the organizational and social structures through which health services are delivered and received, and the public health system.
Designed to provide foundations that include basic statistical concepts and methodologies, and to expose students to the role of statistical thinking and analysis in interdisciplinary research and in the public sphere.
