More than 100 years of global public health experience. A collaborative learning environment. The charm and mystique of New Orleans. What more could you ask from a top school of public health?

Tulane University was founded in 1834 for the purpose of addressing the major public health concerns of the time, and the School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine continues to live out that mission today. Our faculty are actively involved in research and programs that address the public’s health in every way imaginable, from COVID-19 research and response to health policy at the state and federal level, nutrition programs to address food insecurity to disaster response to catastrophic storms, just to name a few. Our students learn from faculty who are actively engaged in the health needs of communities around the corner and around the globe. We’ve long been known for our hands-on approach to public health education, and employers routinely report that our graduates are prepared and ready to work on day one. This approach is true whether students learn in person at our campus located in the heart of New Orleans or through one of our growing list of high-caliber online programs.
