The School of Public Health and Information Sciences's vision is to be an internationally recognized center of excellence for the creation, sharing, and application of knowledge for the public’s health.
Public Health is more than restaurant inspections, flu shots and managing health departments. It is identifying emerging health threats and risks, monitoring health factors and status, understanding how people seek and respond to health information and preparing responses to events that can affect the public’s health.
SPHIS currently has about 200 undergraduate students, 130 graduate students, and 80 doctoral students. SPHIS has 20 instructional programs including two undergraduate degrees, seven master’s degrees, including the MPH with six concentrations, five Ph.D. programs, and two certificates.
Overall enrollment at SPHIS has doubled over the last 5 years. General support to the school supports pioneering programs in biostatistics, epidemiology, environmental and occupational health, health promotion and behavioral sciences and health management will help us make our mark as a leading School of Public Health and Information Sciences.
