About the College of Public Health and Human Sciences


Accreditation Seal | Council on Education for Public HealthAs Oregon's only accredited college of public health and human sciences, we are thinking about the public's health in new ways. Being a new college means we're positioned to look beyond the traditional ways of doing things, and it allows us to fast-track our vision of becoming a preeminent college of public health and human sciences. In fact, we are on the leading edge of a national movement to integrate our MPH curriculum to ensure that our globally minded students meet the needs of the next generation.

In addition to creating a modern curriculum, we are holistically addressing the big issues that affect health across our lifespan: chronic and infectious disease, injury, health disparities, obesity, health care reform, youth development, nutrition, health policy, physical activity, environmental and occupational health, and lifestyle and behavior.

As a diverse community of problem-solvers and through teaching, research, outreach and collaboration across our college, university, state and world, we are leading the change in how people think about and ensure the health and well-being of every person, family and community in Oregon and beyond.

Division of Health Sciences

In 2009, OSU’s Strategic Alignment created divisions, and we are pleased to work with the colleges of Pharmacy and Veterinary Medicine in the Division of Health Sciences. New collaborations between our colleges take advantage of shared missions, joint research and mutual efforts to advance our excellence in teaching, research and outreach.
