School of Rural Public Health (SRPH), part of the Texas A&M University System, is the first of its kind in the nation. The school focuses on the unique health needs of rural populations. The SRPH targets major health issues, develops effective strategies for prevention and intervention, provides analytical efforts to show that specific strategies can improve quality of life, and yields policy to improve health care systems. The school contains departments for epidemiology, biostatistics, health policy and management, social and behavioral health, environmental and occupational health, or community public health and management.In its seven short years of academic existence, the School of Rural Public Health has developed three master's and two doctoral degree programs, a distance education program spanning Central and South Texas, and several centers of research excellence. It was awarded full accreditation. The school recently moved into a new three-building complex adjacent to the College of Medicine in College Station. The school offers the Master of Public Health (M.P.H.), Master of Health Administration (M.H.A.), Master of Science in Public Health (M.S.P.H.), Ph.D. in Health Services Research and a Doctor of Public Health (Dr.P.H.) with a concentration in Social and Behavioral Health.
