Master of Public Health
The Master of Public Health is a 47 credit program designed to prepare individuals to serve as practitioners, researchers and instructors in the area of public health at the local, state, national and international setting. The MPH program offers students the choice of three different concentrations: Food, Nutrition and Health, Health Policy and Administration, or Physical Activity.
The MPH program supports interdisciplinary communication, promotes a broad intellectual framework for problem solving and fosters the development of professional public health values. Graduates from the MPH program will be ready to begin their professional careers with a level of competence appropriate to stay current with developments in public health and related fields. Those interested in research careers will be prepared to engage in research that addresses community-relevant public health questions.

The program is designed for students working full-time during the day. All classes are, with the exception of the practicum, offered in the evenings in eight-week sessions.
The program includes instruction in epidemiology, biostatistics, environmental and occupational health, health services and administration and social and behavioral science.
