Introduction

Public health is an essential function of modern society. It is, in the words of the Institute of Medicine, “What we as a society do collectively to assure the conditions in which people can be healthy.”

Public health professionals must deal with myriad issues:

  • Prevention and control of disease
  • Access to quality healthcare
  • Environmental protection
  • The health needs of special populations
  • Data analysis and evaluation
  • Policy planning and administration
  • Environmental justice, and
  • Health Promotion

While some positions require specialized training, most demand a strong interdisciplinary foundation for practice.

Our Mission

The MPH program strives to provide world-class public health education in the United States and globally, preparing competent public health professionals, to improve health, prevent disease, reduce health disparities, and enhance the quality of life through education, scholarship, and service.
