Public Health, M.P.H.
The Council on Education for Public Health-accredited Master of Public Health (M.P.H.) program provides a collaborative and integrated approach to improving population health and healthcare. The MPH program uses collaborative partnerships to meet diverse community health needs through educating future leaders, and promoting social justice and excellence in practice.
Public health professionals promote good health, prevent disease within communities, and address multiple complex public health problems. The M.P.H. provides graduate level community-based education and research, in two formats: traditional in-seat and online/hybrid.
