UC Davis Department of Public Health Sciences

About UC Davis Department of Public Health Sciences

The Graduate Group in Public Health Sciences was established in 2017 and is one of nearly 100 Graduate Groups at UC Davis. It offers M.P.H. and Ph.D. degrees, and includes approximately 50 faculty members from across schools and departments who teach courses and mentor students. The Office of Graduate Studies acknowledges the distinctive approach to graduate education at UC Davis that involves graduate groups, rather than departmentally based programs. The interdisciplinary membership of the Graduate Groups promotes “…shared research interests among faculty and students, flexibility to grow and quickly change to reflect emerging areas of interdisciplinary knowledge and technology, and an acceptance that many research questions transcend traditional academic departmental boundaries.”
