About the School of Public Health
In a world of pressing health concerns, a degree in public health can make a difference. The University of Memphis School of Public Health (SPH) offers two master's degree programs— Master of Public Health and Master of Health Administration. We also offer doctoral programs in Social and Behavioral Sciences, Epidemiology, and Health Systems and Policy. One of the unique aspects of SPH is the way our students serve the community as they earn their degrees. Students and faculty work closely with officials and community leaders, conducting research that leads to changes in health policies. We are engaged in our community, and collaborate with local, national and international health organizations. Because of these relationships, our students have more opportunities for internships and graduate assistantships with leading health organizations.
