Program Overview

Program Description:
The MPH in Public Health Practice is a broad-based, graduate-level public health degree designed for health care professionals. The curriculum covers all public health competencies with courses in public health disciplines including biostatistics, community health education, environmental health, epidemiology, and health policy and management. The curriculum takes an interdisciplinary approach that melds economic, socio-cultural, health services research, and organizational management theories with the real world practice of public health professionals. The online Master's Degree in Public Health is designed for the full-time, working health program administrator, public health worker, or health care professional who is not planning an academic career, but who plans to continue working in the health care field. Participants in this online master’s degree seek to "be part of the solution" to our society's persistent health care problems. They come from state health departments, managed care organizations, academic medical centers, municipal and county health departments, Veterans Administration health systems, school health programs, private not-for-profit community agencies, and many other settings. While there is a strong interest in the program within the Northeastern United States, we have students from across the United States and around the world.
