At the School of Public Health, our academic programs and initiatives evolve to meet pressing public health issues, to better equip our students for the workforce, and to reflect our commitment to diversity and inclusion. Several newer MPH concentrations - Physical Activity, Health Equity, and Health Policy Analysis and Evaluation - address important public health needs. SPH graduate students may also earn a Global Health Certificate, while courses offered jointly with the University of Maryland School of Medicine broaden student perspectives.

Public health addresses complex issues: the obesity epidemic, climate change, substance abuse, aging, health disparities and much more. The University of Maryland School of Public Health, located at one of the nation's leading public research universities, offers an unusual breadth of expertise to explore these and other issues through public health disciplines as well as lenses as varied as engineering, arts and humanities, business and public policy.

SPH alumni network leaders and members

While our School of Public Health launched in 2007, we are built upon a foundation of disciplines that have a long and rich history at the University of Maryland. As such, we celebrate the thousands of Terps who have graduated from our legacy departments as well as our recent SPH alumni. We welcome you, as well as our many friends and colleagues, to engage in School of Public Health activities and to explore ways to support our growth and success.
