Why Tulane SPHTM?

Learn. Practice. Live.

Key ingredients of life as an SPHTM student.

Learn. It’s why you’ve chosen Tulane SPHTM, right? Our programs are rigorous and fully accredited, so you’ll get a solid grounding in the broad base of public health and, more specifically, in your chosen field of study. Better than that, our experienced faculty are available to talk about their research, your studies, and the field of public health to help you every step of the way. Our collegial atmosphere helps everyone succeed.

Practice. Your education won’t just happen in the classroom. We believe – very much – in the application of skills learned. Through every step in your journey you will be encouraged to get out and get your hands dirty, to not just learn public health but to do ;public health. Whether it's working with a professor on research, volunteering with a local non-profit, or completing the practicum requirement, you'll have the opportunity to turn public health interests into real, hands-on experiences that prepare you for your career. 

Live. As important as learning and practice are, we believe it’s equally critical to live deeply and fully, something we know a thing or two about in this city. We hope that our graduates leave Tulane armed with knowledge, experience, and a zest for life they can take with them everywhere. The most successful people balance professional interests with personal pursuits, and a Tulane education helps you to see the value in this combination.
