The Master of Public Health (M.P.H.) degree program offers experienced health workers an opportunity to complete a course of study leading to a professional degree. Health professionals expand their knowledge base in public health, extend and sharpen their professional skills, broaden their perspective on public health problems, and prepare to assume a greater professional responsibility.
M.P.H. degree candidates must complete a minimum of 42 credits of academic work, including an M.P.H. Practicum and an M.P.H. Culminating Experience. Candidates may enroll either full-time, in which case they should be able to complete degree requirements in three semesters and an intervening summer, or part-time, in which case they are expected to complete degree requirements within three years of matriculation. Some courses are offered online as well as on campus.
