The UCLA School of Public Health was established in March 17, 1961 as a unit within the UCLA Center for Health Sciences (CHS).
Prior to the School's establishment, instruction in public health at UCLA formally began in 1945 with the establishment of
the University of California system-wide public health program. In 1947 the UCLA Department of Public Health was created and
in 1955 the department began offering graduate study.
Initially, the School of Public Health was divided into six divisions: Health Services and Hospital Administration; Epidemiology;
Environmental and Nutritional Sciences; Population, Family, and International Health; Behavioral Science and Health Education;
and Biostatistics. In the 1980s the School reorganized into five departments: Biostatistics, Community Health Sciences, Environmental
Health Sciences, Epidemiology, and Health Services.
