Expert faculty across our four departments and six locations throughout Texas have contributed to research and methodology used in healthcare organizations and programs around the world. It’s this history of achievement and grounding in one of the world’s most prestigious academic systems that allows us to trail blaze new solutions to persistent problems. Innovation, creativity, and conviction drive us forward; academic fellowship and collaboration keep us ahead of the curve.

More education should be a boost, not a barrier.

This is a growing field. The health problems we face are dynamic and multifaceted, and we’re going to need everyone—people from all different cultures and backgrounds—to solve them. Leadership at UTHealth Houston School of Public Health works hard to create opportunities for financial assistance to keep our tuition rates in check so that our students can focus on preparing for a rewarding and challenging career. In addition to being one of the most affordable schools of public health, our programs and research opportunities set the bar when it comes to hands-on experience and faculty engagement. Whether you’re just starting out, or looking to further develop your current skill set, there’s a program for you here.

We have six locations to serve all of Texas and beyond.

The unique racial, geographic, and economic variety of Texas provides students the opportunity to explore a wide range of public health areas. Each campus is tightly woven into the fabric of the surrounding community. Our programs partner with healthcare organizations, schools, community groups, corporations, and government agencies. The locality of our impact is balanced by its ability to scale to national and global consequences.
