Policy Concentrations

All Heller PhD students are required to select a policy concentration that enables them to develop a deeper expertise in a particular arena:  Health and Behavioral Health; Children, Youth, and Families; Assets and Inequalities; or Global Health and Development.  In each of these, faculty resources and research centers of the Heller School are used to enrich the academic environment and also provide opportunities for students to work on research and broaden their career network.  Policy is becoming increasingly complex and understanding the language, research, organizations and leaders in a particular area is essential to maximizing one's impact.
