Welcome to the Department of Public Health Sciences. Our mission is to prepare public health practitioners for the State of New Mexico, the region, and the country.
We have outstanding faculty, excellent facilities, and a tremendous legacy in preparing public health educators. For the longest of time we were the ONLY institution in the country that had an undergraduate community/public health education program approved as well as an MPH accredited by the Council for Education in Public Health (CEPH). Baylor University recently joined us as having this distinction.
This website is used for a variety of reasons– one, to recruit potential students; two, to provide a resource for our current students.
If you should ever have a question, please feel free to stop by. I have an open door policy. I’m in CHSS 326 (that’s the Memorial Tower building).
We don’t talk public health, we are public health!
