The Master of Public Health (MPH) Program, accredited by the Council of Education in Public Health (CEPH) is a two-year program offering core public health courses with concentrations in Health Management, Health Informatics, Environmental Health, and Social and Behavioral Sciences. The Program also includes a public health internship and a Capstone research experience. This comprehensive educational experience is designed to prepare leaders with critical thinking, problem-solving, and information management skills needed to improve healthcare delivery and promote public health.
An MPH degree presents tremendous value to “clinicians” as well as “non-clinical professionals,” with undergraduate preparation in any field. Clinicians are prepared to be leaders in evidence-based quality improvement, patient-centered care, and community health. They are equipped with research skills to critically evaluate clinical literature and promote evidence in diverse areas such as health services organization. Non-clinical professionals are prepared with knowledge and skills from multiple disciplines to create and manage information systems, improve healthcare delivery and thereby promote community health.
The MPH Program is offered largely online, and can be completed in two years. It is designed to support the working professional in pursuit of a graduate degree. Graduates are prepared to be leaders in healthcare organizations, public health agencies, the pharmaceutical and information technology industries, and research institutes.
Master of Public Health with concentration in Health Informatics prepares professionals with requisite knowledge and skills to create, analyze, and manage information system to improve health delivery.
Note to International Applicants: The MPH program delivers approximately 90 percent of its content via online courses. The remaining 10 percent is delivered as on-campus courses which require the student to attend classes at the Health Science Campus. At this time, the MPH program does not offer sufficient on-campus course work for students with F–1 or J–1 student status to meet all study requirements. The university will not issue a Certification of Eligibility for F–2 Academic Students (Form I–20) or J–1 Exchange Visitors, Student Category (Form DS–2019) for MPH program enrollment.
