The University of New Mexico (UNM), New Mexico's flagship university, was founded in 1889 and is nestled between the Sandia Mountains and the historic Rio Grande Valley in Albuquerque. Housed within UNM, the College of Population Health (COPH) serves the region’s rural, tribal and international border communities. The COPH offers undergraduate and graduate degrees and soon a doctorate in health equity sciences.
The MPH program mission is to advance the health, environmental and social well-being of people in and outside of New Mexico, offering focus areas in interprofessional education, maternal child health, and formal dual degrees in Latin American studies and medicine. Students also have the flexibility of creating individualized dual degrees. Our students enjoy access to nationally recognized faculty and multiple opportunities for interdisciplinary education through collaborations with NM Academic Health Department, COPH Centers for Participatory Research and Transdisciplinary Research, Equity and Engagement, and other local and national agencies.
