Students at the Rollins School of Public Health learn to identify, analyze, and intervene in today’s most pressing public health issues while pursuing a master of public health (MPH), master of science in public health (MSPH), dual degree, doctoral degree, or certificate. Ranked number 4 in U.S. News and World Report’s 2022 Public Health Rankings, Rollins offers an innovative public health program that combines field experience with top-caliber teaching across six academic departments, including an Executive MPH program for professionals. Our graduate students learn in and outside of the classroom while working with our school’s centers and at Atlanta-area organizations such as The Carter Center, local and state health departments, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, American Cancer Society, and more.

"The problems we’re facing didn’t start yesterday, and the solutions probably aren’t going to be completed by tomorrow, but that doesn’t mean that either there isn’t a role for incremental change, or that there isn’t a role for critical thinking about fundamental problems, so we need to engage in both. What I love about public health is that it can be about those things. We can work within the system, but there’s also room for big, aspirational thinking."
