The Religion and Public Health Collaborative strives to create and support dialogue and learning across the disciplines of religion and public health. In the tradition of Emory’s unique strengths in the fields of religion and public health, we are committed to providing students with opportunities to explore the intersection of these areas of study.

The RPHC offers varied opportunities for current students interested in pursuing studies of religion and public health, including courses in religion and public health, a dual-degree program, a certificate program, and applied research in Kenya. The dual-degree program has been developed through a partnership between the Candler School Theology and the Rollins School of Public Health; the Master of Divinity and Master of Public Health (MDiv/MPH) and the Master of Theological Studies and Master of Public Health (MTS/MPH). Students can also earn a Certificate in Religion and Health, with an emphasis in either Community and Congregational Health Ministries or the Faith and Health of the Public. Finally, field placement opportunities for intensive immersion into religion, health, and development are available.
