Redefining what is possible.

Departments

The School of Public Health and its seven departments are composed of a diverse community of researchers, educators, students, collaborators and leaders working to transforming the future of public health. Their research and initiatives employ investigative sciences to find the causes of public health threats, develop interventions, enhance processes, and build health equity among populations.

With a new bachelor’s program and nearly thirty specialized master's and doctoral programs across our seven departments, you’re sure to find one that matches your passion, strengths, background and career goals.
