Welcome to Graduate Studies!

Welcome College of Public Health Students! We are delighted you have chosen to pursue your educational goals with us and can assure you that you have made a wise choice. Public Health is an incredibly exciting and challenging field and at USF, we continue to anticipate changes in our field so that you are as prepared as you can be to be successful. We launched the first distance-based MPH degree in the nation many years ago; we were leaders in adopting the national Certification in Public Health examination; we have completely transformed our DrPH curriculum and are in the process of changing our MPH to meet the new demands of the field. Perhaps most important, we are an integral part of USF Health, where together, we make life better for people in communities in the Tampa Bay area and around the world. Public Health is your health and your chance to make a difference in your world. We look forward to getting to know you. Welcome!
