Our public health programs in the College of Public Health and Health Professions at the University of Florida have been developing rapidly during the past few years. You can study for a graduate Masters of Public Health (MPH) degree in one of six concentrations – biostatistics, environmental health,epidemiology, public health management and policy, public health practice, or social and behavioral sciences. If you have a doctoral-level professional degree already, you may qualify for a 42-credit accelerated program in any of the above concentrations.

For UF professional students, we have joint programs of study with the Colleges of Law, Medicine, Pharmacy, and Veterinary Medicine. PhD/MPH programs are also available with Clinical and Health Psychology, Health Services Research, and Rehabilitation Science PhD programs in our college, and collaborative degree programs can be developed on an individual basis with other PhD and Master’s programs throughout the university.

If you are already in the public health workforce, or you would like to move in that direction, but a master’s degree is more than you need, consider ourCertificate in Public Health. This 15-credit option includes the foundation course in each of the five public health science concentrations, thus providing a broad overview of the skills and knowledge of the public health disciplines. The certificate is available on campus to graduate students and working professionals, and it is available online to individuals outside the university with video captures of classroom lectures and a virtual internet-based classroom for discussions, assignments, and tests. Should you decide to enter the MPH program, graduate credits earned for the certificate can be applied to the degree.
