The Master of Public Health (MPH) program at the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) Julia Jones Matthews School of Population and Public Health has been awarded the full seven-year accreditation by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) through July 1, 2031.

“This achievement is the outcome of the incredible efforts of our faculty, staff, students and community advisors to prioritize and improve the future of health for West Texans,” said Gerard E. Carrino, Ph.D., MPH, dean of the Julia Jones Matthews School of Population and Public Health. “We serve West Texas first and West Texas best.”

Carrino also emphasized the importance of programs that are accessible to communities across vast distances of West Texas and beyond, and to students with competing demands.

"Our school continuously strives to improve the health of communities, localities and regions. We are doubling down on delivering accessible education and resources to real-world, busy people where they work, play and live.
