About

Welcome to the University of California, San Diego Master of Public Health (MPH). Public health has been described as the intersection of epidemiology and social justice. Events of the last year have certainly emphasized this observation. 

Overview

About this Degree

The Master of Public Health at University of California, San Diego strives to address both of these critical aspects of public health with a program of academic rigor and an emphasis on equity and social justice across the MPH and the Herbert Wertheim School of Public Health & Human Longevity Science. 2020 has been a year of firsts for the UC San Diego MPH. We graduated our first class in June. 

We added two new concentrations: Public Mental Health and Technology and Precision Health. We awarded our first Diversity Fellowships. And perhaps most importantly, the MPH is one of the seven initial education programs of the new UC San Diego Herbert Wertheim School of Public Health & Human Longevity Science.

We are delighted to be part of the dynamic and diverse San Diego public health community. Our faculty and students exemplify the diversity, innovation, and excellence of  21st century California and public health.
