The Undergraduate Public Health Program provides an excellent education as well as an entryway to a rewarding career. We want you to enjoy your experience at Tulane and in the program. Below, you will find contact information as well as useful information for the public health student.
The UPH SGA hosts events throughout the year, many of which serve as great networking opportunities for undergraduate public health students to meet with SPHTM alumni. The SGA also works with the graduate school on events that helps current undergraduate students get to know the graduate school and the opportunities for a combined degree. In 2016, the association sponsored the "Future of American Healthcare" event, which provided insight into the U.S. healthcare system under the president-elect.

There are many international programs that work well with our degree program and allow our students to integrate a semester abroad into their degree program. Please see this list of programs that have been assessed for public health academic credit. Students are welcome to go on other study abroad programs.
Students interested in studying abroad can get more information and start an application on the Tulane Office of Study Abroad website.
