The Blended Master of Public Health Degree Program in Worcester, MA

A Master of Public Health degree is closer than you think!

Whether you are looking to expand your public health skills, enhance your professional medical practice, or take your medical degree in a new direction, the MPH-Worcester program is designed to work around the demanding lives of medical and public health professionals. The program is blended, offering both on-campus evening courses and online web-based courses.

Our program offers three different areas of concentration: the general public health practice concentration, epidemiology, and an option specifically tailored for current medical students. Each of the programs requires 42 credits and includes both a practicum and final capstone course. Students in the MPH-Worcester program are assigned a program advisor upon admittance. The student and advisor work closely to create a plan of study based on the student’s goals and desires.

All three concentrations are fully accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) and the Council on Education in Public Health (CEPH). All programs are administered by the University of Massachusetts Amherst’s School of Public Health and Health Sciences, a member of the Association of Schools & Programs of Public Health (ASPPH). Our accreditation guarantees that upon graduation you are eligible to apply for Federal and State employment, U.S. Government fellowships, and to become certified in public health.
