Welcome to the School of Public Health and Applied Human Sciences 

The School of Public Health and Applied Human Sciences is located in the Main Campus, 8-4-4 building.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION:
The School of Public Health was operationalized in August 2011. It was previously a Department in the School of Health Sciences. The establishment of the School was propelled by the need to strengthen delivery of training of innovative and creative public health professionals and researchers and in addition to improve community engagement. In September 2018 the University restructured the schools and departments. This resulted to merging of some departments from the School of Applied Human Sciences with those in the School of Public Health. The School now has six departments from its previous four. The name of the School has also changed to accommodate the additional departments and is now referred to as the School of Public Health and Applied Human Sciences.
