    The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston offers the Masters in Public Health degree (MPH) at UTEP. This program was developed to provide students with a basic foundation in public health and an understanding of the unique health problems of the US-Mexico border through course work and applied research. Courses are provided by the University of Texas - Houston School of Public Health faculty in residence at the El Paso campus, as well as through interactive television courses taught by faculty at both the Houston and San Antonio campuses. In addition, some upper-division and graduate courses offered by UTEP academic departments may be taken concurrently and be considered in fulfillment of degree requirements. The program is fully accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health.

    The El Paso satellite program provides students with the opportunity to study and conduct research in a binational and multicultural region. Students are expected to gain a competency in the five basic disciplines of public health (administration, behavioral sciences, biometry, environmental health, and epidemiology) with a focus on border health. Degree requirements include the completion of a minimum of 36 credit hours, including a Masters thesis in which students examine a specific health issue in depth. The University of Texas - Houston Health Science Center School of Public Health is the degree-granting institution. For additional information, call (915) 747-8500.
