Turn your compassion into action

Improving quality of life and achieving health equity are not just slogans — they lie at the heart of what we do at the UMass Amherst School of Public Health and Health Sciences. Whether we are combating a global pandemic or an opioid epidemic, working to prevent chronic disease or food insecurity, advocating for global health or the environment, or striving toward healthy aging, lifestyles, or reproductive health, our curriculum, outreach, practice, and research are always carried out with the goal of improving health outcomes for all.

As a student in one of our bachelor's, master's, or doctoral programs, you can turn your passion into activism and become an agent of change. Our degree programs cover all aspects of public health and health sciences. There is one designed just for you.
