Why UCLA FSPH

Our Track Record

Through pioneering research UCLA Fielding School of Public Health faculty:

  • Discovered the nutritional value of vitamin E
  • Established the link between lifestyle and longevity
  • Promoted the benefits of breastfeeding on a global scale
  • Demonstrated how HIV-related immune deficiency is transmitted, a discovery that has prevented millions of infections
  • Established a relationship between air pollutants and respiratory capacity in children and irreversible changes in lung function in adults.

These and many other milestones are possible thanks to the interdisciplinary approach that a degree in public health from UCLA provides.

Our students receive state-of-the art public health training from distinguished experts (including sixteen members of the Institute of Medicine and three past presidents of the American Public Health Association) along with practical, hands-on experience.

The School is consistently rated among the top 10 schools of public health in the country by U.S. News and World Report.
