Suffolk University

Department of Sociology

M.A. in Women's Health

This program is the first in the United States to offer a broad-based graduate-level social science degree in Women’s Health. Suffolk’s Program goes beyond a solely biological or clinical model to offer a broad understanding of women’s health as including cultural, emotional, psychosocial, legal, and economic components. This program aims to educate a new generation of educators, leaders, and advocates who can contribute to women’s health and foster awareness of women’s health issues in a variety of clinical, civic, educational, and community contexts. Combining academic training with a required, hands-on community internship, the program provides intellectual and practical tools for working with women of diverse ages and backgrounds.

Population and Health is one of the Sociology Department's five concentrations. The Population and Health concentration includes eight faculty members with active research programs. Across U.S. and international contexts, our faculty study social inequalities in health, biodemography and biosocial interactions, neighborhood processes, environmental inequality, pollution and health, migration, statistical and mathematical models for medical sociology, public policy, HIV/AIDS, sexual behavior, health across the life course, social psychological processes influencing health, families and health, and health behaviors.

Our Population and Health researchers benefit from close ties to the interdisciplinary, intercampus Health and Society Program and Population Program in the Institute of Behavioral Science.
