 Latest News from the Department of Public Health

Our public health programs prepare students to be competent, future public health leaders. Our Master of Public Health (MPH) program has been accredited since 1969, making it the first nationally accredited program outside a school of public health. We also formed Tennessee’s first academic health department, with the purpose of bridging knowledge and improving health.

Our programs are distinguished by the practical experience students gain through community-based class projects, volunteering opportunities, and well-matched applied practice experiences.

Upcoming Events

  • TBA

Attention future MPH applicants:  Please note that the number of departmental graduate teaching assistantships (GTAs) with tuition waivers is very limited and are highly competitive. Preference for assistantships is given to first year PhD students. If qualified PhD student applicants are not available, assistantship opportunities will be extended to MPH students. Students who receive departmental GTA positions will be notified by the end of April for the following Academic Year.
