The Graduate School of Public Health (GSPH) consistently ranks in the top tier of public health schools in research funding from the National Institutes of Health. Some of our traditional areas of research strength include women’s health, infectious diseases, human genetics, aging and longevity, health administration, environmental health and biostatistics. Some newer areas of excellence include public health systems research; public health dynamics (which includes computer modeling and simulation); lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender health and wellness; Medicare and Medicaid policy; and health reform analysis.

Our seven departments offer master of science, master of public health and master of health administration degrees, as well as PhD and DrPH degrees. Eight certificate programs round out the array of educational options.
