Brown University has launched a doctoral program in Behavioral and Social Health Sciences: brown.edu/go/BSHS. The new doctoral program is housed in the Department of Behavioral and Social Sciences in the Brown University School of Public Health. 

Students of Behavioral and Social Health Sciences employ behavioral and social science theory and methods to understand and ameliorate contemporary public health problems. Training emphasizes an understanding the bases of health behavior and health behavior change from an interdisciplinary perspective, integrating perspectives from traditional behavioral sciences (e.g., psychology, psychiatry) and social sciences (e.g., sociology, anthropology, communications).  Faculty and students engage in research that seeks to identify social, psychological, and behavioral risk factors for disease and illness; understand the psychosocial determinants of the use of health care; and understand health protective behaviors, relationships, and institutions. They also design, implement, and evaluate health-promoting interventions that are grounded in behavioral and social science theory. PhDs are prepared for careers in basic and applied research settings such as academia, government and non-governmental organizations, and health care.

The signatures of Behavioral and Social Health Sciences doctoral training at Brown University include health behavior interventions development and evaluation, with substantive focus on behavioral health issues such as alcohol and other drug abuse; smoking and tobacco use; HIV risk behaviors; diet, physical activity and obesity; and behavioral medicine. Students will be mentored by an accomplished faculty in the Department of Behavioral and Social Sciences (http://www.brown.edu/academics/public-health/behavioral-and-social-sciences/), and join a vibrant community of scholars in the new School of Public Health. Students will also benefit from the intellectual activity and resources of 4 departments within Public Health, as well as 11 research centers and institutes, including the Center for Alcohol and Addiction Studies, Institute for Community Health Promotion, Centers for Behavioral and Preventive Medicine, Center for Evidence-based Medicine, the International Health Institute, the Alcohol Research Center on HIV, and Lifespan/Tufts/Brown Center for AIDS Research (see http://www.brown.edu/academics/public-health/research).

Applications are due January 5 and can be submitted through the Graduate School portal: http://www.brown.edu/academics/gradschool/application-information.
