The mission of the Institute of Public Health is: advancing health through leadership, scholarship, research and service to better the human condition and promote the common good. The Faculty & Staff in the Institute invite you to learn more about its various graduate degree programs. We offer a multi-disciplinary, research- and practice-based curriculum with opportunities to enroll in graduate courses across the Georgia State campus.
The Institute prepares its graduates for service careers in the public and non-profit sectors and in research and academic arenas. IPH also attracts clinicians and researchers from all over the world seeking the opportunity to train in the U.S. in order to address public health concerns in their home countries.
- Prepare students to use multi-disciplinary skills to address contemporary public health problems.
- Advance public health sciences and our understanding of the causes and prevention of disease.
- Promote service activities and initiatives by implementing community-based projects, educating professional and lay audiences, and collaborating with the public health workforce to advance health promotion and disease prevention.
There is not a specific set of characteristics that define our students. They come from various academic and professional backgrounds and contribute uniquely to the discourse in our classes. The ultimate goal of the Institute is to admit students who have a demonstrated academic aptitude, a well-articulated professional focus and a strong commitment to public service.
