Welcome from the Director

Crystal James

Welcome to the Graduate Public Health Program (GPHP) at the College of Veterinary Medicine (TUCVM), Tuskegee University. Our program is uniquely positioned and aligned to the only Historically Black College and University in the USA with a prestigious veterinary training program. In fact, our School of Veterinary Medicine is the leading veterinary institution which has trained at least 75 percent of all African American veterinarians. The GPHP, initiated in August 2011 and entrusted with the rights, privileges and status to offer the Master of Public Health (MPH) and the Master of Science in Public Health (MSPH) degrees, has been assisting to meet the urgent need for more Public Health Professionals nationally and internationally, given the numerous public health concerns that continuously arise due to communicable and non-communicable diseases, health conditions and co-morbidities, environmental challenges, and disaster threats. The program therefore, offers opportunities to minorities who desire to pursue an administrative public health career or to enter the field of research that can transition into the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree. All our graduates have so far received public health training through research application, thesis preparation, and a wide exposure to practical principles, knowledge and public health skills for synthesis, integration and public health application and attainment of the ten (10) essential principles of public Health. We therefore welcome all eligible applicants to apply to our program following our admissions requirement at
