A Public Health Degree That Opens Doors

We believe expertise is best developed through hands-on or direct experience with real-world, professional work. So, we offer you many opportunities to do so. All courses are taught by faculty from diverse academic and methodological backgrounds with the most promising and/or distinguished scholars and public health professionals. Students receive direct personal attention through faculty mentoring and advising to meet individual needs and interests. As a UIS MPH student, you can learn anywhere and anytime from faculty, rich resources, and alumni!
