Introduction to TMU School of Public Health
Founded in 1989, TMU’s School of Public Health is one of the leading authorities in the field of public health research in Taiwan. The School has been a pioneer in the field, educating scientists and practitioners to work toward the improvement of health and quality of life through lifelong learning and teamwork. Master and doctoral degree programs have trained students since 1996 and 2001, respectively. To train qualified public health specialists in disease prevention and health promotion, the School offers concentrations in Environmental Health, Epidemiology and Community Health. During the years of 2002-2008, the School recruited master students with concentration in Health Communication. Since August 2010, the School has expanded its global outreach and has been enriched by many international students from various nations. Our mission is to provide the highest quality of public health education.
The School of Public Health in TMU is located on the fifth floor and parts of the fourth floor of the Health Science Building, with an area of about 830 square meters. The School consists of two conference rooms, one student laboratory, six professional research laboratories and an Environmental and Epidemiology Data Processing Center. In addition to these research facilities, there are 18 faculty offices and an open cubicle area for graduate students and research assistants. We offer international programs taught in English as well as interactive coursework, so both international and local students acquire cross-cultural knowledge and contextualized understanding of international public health issues. The School is dedicated to fostering diversity and striving for excellence.
