UIC School of Public Health
At the University of Illinois at Chicago School of Public Health (UIC SPH), we offer outstanding courses and research opportunities in all areas of public health. Students benefit from a diverse, accomplished faculty while learning and working in one of the most vibrant cities in the world. We prioritize real world application—translating our knowledge into action and our compassion into results. When you enroll at UIC SPH, you will learn how to make a difference in the health of populations around the world.
Established in 1970, the fully accredited UIC SPH currently offers five degrees: Master of Public Health (MPH), Master of Science (MS), Master of Healthcare Administration (MHA), Doctor of Public Health (DrPH) and the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), along with certificate programs and nondegree continuing education opportunities to both full and part-time students and professionals practicing in the field. Beginning in Fall 2012, we will offer a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Public Health as well.
As public health plays an increasingly critical role in today's society, the innovative research and inspiring achievements at UIC SPH have become part of local, national and international conversation.
Through our faculty, students, and alumni, the UIC SPH presence extends far beyond its role as an academic environment. Here are examples of our proud achievements and ongoing discovery:
- Curbing Violence and Shootings in Chicago

- CHEERing on Chicago's Waterways
- Exploring the Science Behind the Fountain of Youth
- Surveying the Stigma of Being Gay in the Latino Community
- Leaving No Mother Behind

These examples are representative of the quality and importance of the many ongoing projects at UIC SPH. Some others include health and aging, environmental chemistry, airplane manufacturing, brain tumors, health disparities, occupational injuries, hospital systems and mental health.
