School of Public Health

Public Health is at the heart of the mission of Loma Linda University Health. The school of public health, founded in 1967, continues to be the hub for public health initiatives at LLUH, a Seventh-day Adventist Christian organization. Our commitment to our students is an exceptional learning experience that instills confidence and skills that shape leaders in public health and beyond. The Loma Linda University School of Public Health prepares its students for rewarding public health careers in an increasingly changing health care system. We offer 17 public health degree programs at the master’s and doctoral level. The School of Public Health also offers MPH and DrPH degrees online.
