Our program is uniquely positioned and aligned to the only Historically Black College and University in the USA with a prestigious veterinary training program.

The PHP, initiated in August 2011 and entrusted with the rights, privileges and status to offer the Master of Public Health (MPH) and the Master of Science in Public Health (MPH) degrees, has been assisting to meet the urgent need for more Public Health Professionals nationally and internationally, given the numerous public health concerns that continuously arise due to communicable and non-communicable diseases, health conditions and co-morbidities, environmental challenges, and disaster threats. The program therefore, offers opportunities to minorities who desire to pursue an administrative public health career or to enter the field of research that can transition into the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree. All our graduates have so far received public health training through research application, thesis preparation, and a wide exposure to practical principles, knowledge and public health skills for synthesis, integration and public health application and attainment of the ten (10) essential principles of public Health.
