University of Texas at El Paso
Our MPH program is the only in the nation to offer a specific concentration in “Hispanic and Border Health”. This concentration prepares students for public health practice and research in Hispanic and border communities in the U.S. and elsewhere. The program places special emphasis on the promotion of health equity in Hispanic and border communities through the use of evidence-based approaches and the preparation of Hispanic health professionals. Our close partnerships with public health agencies and community-based organizations strengthens the link between theory and practice for students. Our location on the U.S.-Mexico border provides practice, research, and service opportunities for students in a unique bilingual/bicultural setting. Additional opportunities are available in several Latin American countries. The local El Paso community is a vibrant, culturally diverse city with a low cost of living. More than 300 days of sunshine/year and a dry climate makes it possible to enjoy outdoor activities year-round.
