School of Public Health

Students working in a lab

The mission of the School of Public Health is to promote health and quality of life through graduate education, applied research, and community service in the prevention and control of disease, injury, and disability. The curriculum combines knowledge of the disciplines of public health — biostatistics, community health and prevention, environmental and occupational health, epidemiology, and health management and policy — with practical application of that knowledge. By working collaboratively with community groups, agencies, and populations, professionals are prepared to effectively address today's most pressing public health problems.

The School of Public Health offers master’s and doctoral degrees — most of which are full-time programs — as well as part-time online certificates. As part of a top-tier comprehensive research university, students benefit from specialized research centers and cross-disciplinary collaborations within the University as well as with leading biopharma, pharmaceutical, and healthcare companies in the region.
