peter ginter 2017 vPeter Ginter, Ph.D.The University of Alabama at Birmingham’s School of Public Health has been nationally recognized by Master’s in Public Health Degrees for having a top-ranked master’s in public health online degree. The School of Public Health’s online degree comes in second out of a final list of 10 national programs.

Master’s in Public Health Degrees based its rankings on an initial list of more than 130 accredited colleges and universities that offered at least one public health program by the National Center for Education Statistics. Factors such as tuition, website quality, available concentrations and a recognition by U.S. News & World Report were taken into consideration.

According to Master’s in Public Health Degrees, UAB ranked second due in part for helping its students develop skills in order to address public health issues.

“As UAB has the only accredited school of public health in Alabama, a ranking such as this helps educate potential students about our online degrees and the quality of receiving their master’s degree remotely,” said Peter Ginter, Ph.D., interim dean for the School of Public Health. “We’re proud to be ranked among some tremendous programs and hope this recognition connects our school with new audiences in Alabama and beyond.”
