Public Health (M.P.H.)
The Master of Public Health (MPH) Program is located in the Department of Family Medicine & Public Health Sciences. The MPH degree is a graduate-level professional degree that prepares students for public health practice in communities, organizations, work sites, and in governmental, public, and non-profit settings. MPH graduates are prepared with leadership abilities to promote population health and safety, prevent chronic and infectious disease, and to develop policy and practice-based evidence through clinical and applied research. The interdisciplinary and community-engaged nature of public health practice is reinforced throughout education, research, and service activities.
Admission to the MPH Program is contingent upon admission to the Graduate School. (See also School of Medicine Graduate Program policies.) Contact the MPH Program for specific admission requirements. Applications for the MPH program are only considered for fall semester admission. Completed applications are reviewed through June.
