Public Health Programs at Florida State University


According to US News, Florida State University ranks within the top 20 public schools in the nation.

We are also #26 in Best Colleges for Veterans.

The Public Health program is one of the newest degree programs within the College of Social Sciences and Public Policy. The first Master of Public Health degree was conferred in 2004, while the Bachelor of Science in Public Health degree program was recently established in 2020.

Although youthful, our program is comprised of knowledgeable and expert faculty in their chosen fields. Our programs provide students with foundational skills and expertise for success.


There are many definitions to describe public health. In short, it is the science and art of preventing disease, prolonging life, and promoting health through organized community effort.

The five disciplines within public health are epidemiology, statistics, environmental health science, health policy and management, and social and behavioral sciences.


We strive to provide an education that will prepare students for interdisciplinary public health careers.
