The Georgia State University School of Public Health has moved up 11 positions in the 2023-2024 U.S. News and World Report ranking of Best Public Health Schools.
Now ranked no. 24 among public institutions, the Georgia State School of Public Health has grown dramatically since its founding nearly 10 years ago. It is one of the most diverse schools of its kind in America and offers a Bachelor of Science in Public Health, the MPH in six concentrations, the PhD in four concentrations and a DrPH degree, as well as several certificate and dual-degree programs.
Faculty members in the School of Public Health have been recognized internationally for excellence in teaching, and earlier this year the school launched its Office of Applied Practice Experiences and Career Services to provide students with centralized support and an array of services. In addition to educating students, SPH faculty engage in impactful research and outreach that in the last year alone was supported by a record $21 million in external funding.
“The faculty, staff and programs of the Georgia State School of Public Health are outstanding, and I am excited about the school’s trajectory,” said Dean and Professor Rodney Lyn. “Guided by our school’s ambitious Vision 2027 Strategic Plan, we are dedicated to preparing the next generation of public health leaders and advancing health equity through research and community engagement.”
