Welcome

At UT, the graduate 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 graduate programs are distinguished by the practical experience students gain through community-based class projects, volunteering opportunities, and well-matched field placements.
