The mission of the College of Public Health at the University of Georgia is to promote health in human populations, protect the environment and prevent disease and injury in Georgia, the United States and globally through innovative research, exemplary education and engaged service.

The college delivers public health education at the undergraduate, master’s and doctoral levels with programs in biostatistics, disaster management, environmental health, epidemiology, gerontology, global health, health promotion and behavior, public health, health policy and management and toxicology. In addition, five joint degree programs (DVM/MPH, MBA/MPH, MD/MPH, MSW/MPH, PharmD/MPH) provide opportunities for interdisciplinary education across the UGA campus.

Graduates from the UGA College of Public Health enter the workforce fully prepared to address key public health issues, work with communities at home and abroad to tackle strategic challenges, and empower others to do the same.
