The Bachelor of Science in Public Health (BSPH) at Baylor is a nationally accredited degree program that prepares students to promote healthy lifestyles and enhance quality of life for individuals and communities.
The on-campus MPH program offers a strong practice-based approach, global health opportunities, and low faculty-student ratio to provide students with a quality learning experience that can enhance career development.
The online MPH program is designed for compassionate, aspiring public health advocates, preparing students to serve others and improve quality of life across populations by promoting health and wellness locally and globally.
Students in the PhD in Public Health program learn to analyze and inform public health approaches, examine sweeping public health issues, build a career in public health research, and use that research to make a difference
