“Having lived in many countries around the world I gravitated towards the University of Miami’s MPH Program because even though it is a broad field, everyone can find their niche. Also, UM is an active participant in improving the health of the entire Miami community, which resonated with my beliefs and interests.”

Miami offers the perfect setting for students to engage with the community through service, local events, festivals, celebrations, and so much more. There is always something to do in Miami – from arts and culture to beaches and outdoor activities to professional and college sports and unique dining experiences – this city never disappoints!
