Master of Public Health

The Master of Public Health Program at the University of Memphis integrates academic rigor with real world solutions to promote healthy communities and environments, prevent chronic disease, and protect against disease spread. Our focus addresses urban and global health concerns, as well as advocacy for the underserved. The MPH Program has five areas of study: biostatistics; epidemiology; environmental health; health systems management; and social and behavioral sciences.

MPH students are diverse. They have various backgrounds: medicine, nursing, dietetics, psychology, education, biology, chemistry, engineering, computer science, journalism, exercise science, social work, and others. But they share a common feature: a passion for making a difference.
