The School of Public Health and Information Sciences' mission is to pursue excellence and inclusiveness through bold, strategic, and collaborative approaches to research, education, community engagement, policy, and practice. We strive to protect and improve public health and healthcare delivery systems in Louisville, the Commonwealth of Kentucky, the United States, and with our global partners. A degree in public health gives students the skills they need to improve the health of populations and communities as well as alleviate suffering caused by disease, injuries and health disparities. 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.

Our nationally accredited programs prepare students for careers that are in high demand: Biostatistics, Bioinformatics, Clinical Investigation Sciences, Environmental Health, Epidemiology, Global Health, Health Data Analytics, Health Equity, Health Management, Health Policy, and Health Promotion.  We have instructional programs that respond to both the needs of the marketplace and demands of prospective students, including several 100% online degrees and certificates. Our award-winning advisors and student services personnel are dedicated to students’ academic progress and well-being. We seek ways to integrate innovative research within instructional programs. Our faculty are active scholars and successfully compete for grants and contracts. We collaborate with partners across all sectors—government, healthcare, industry, academia, and non-profit—who share our vision for public health.

SPHIS currently about 600 students in undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral programs. SPHIS has 20 instructional programs including 2 undergraduate degrees, 7 master’s degrees including the MPH with 6 concentrations, 5 Ph.D. programs, and 2 certificates. Overall enrollment at SPHIS has doubled over the last 5 years.
