Located in the Chicago area, the Parkinson School of Health Sciences and Public Health is the home for Loyola University Chicago’s graduate and undergraduate Public Health programs. Grounded in Loyola’s Jesuit Catholic tradition, our programs provide students with a community-engaged education that emphasizes social justice, health equity, and real-world learning.

Our STEM-based undergraduate program, housed on Loyola’s Lake Shore Campus, offers a generalist Bachelor of Science in Public Health that highlights practical skills in data analysis. Our Master of Public Health program, based at our Health Sciences Campus in Maywood, has three concentrations: public health policy and management (online); epidemiology (in-person and online); and global health equity (in-person and online). Undergraduates studying Public Health, Environmental Sciences, or Healthcare Administration can pursue a five-year BS/MPH dual degree. We also offer dual degrees in partnership with Loyola’s Stritch School of Medicine (MD/MPH) and School of Social Work (MSW/MPH).
