Welcome to the Department of Health Education

Associate Professor Marty Martinson, chair of the Department of Public Health, describes SF State’s approach to the field of public health and how it relates to social justice.

What's it like to be a student at SF State? Students discuss their experience.

The mission of the Department of Public Health (formerly Health Education) at San Francisco State University is to promote health and health equity at the individual, community, and structural levels through transformative education, research, scholarship and service, all of which value diversity, engage communities and are grounded in cultural humility.

The department offers degree programs leading to a Bachelor of Science in Health Education and a Master of Public Health (MPH). In addition, it offers minors in Health Education and Women’s Health Issues.
