Online Master of Public Health degree starting Spring of 2012

We are pleased to announce the launch of a fully online Master of Public Health degree in Public Health Practice, starting Spring 2012. This program provides an exciting new opportunity for professionals seeking their MPH degree while working in the field of public health. Like our traditional MPH program, this concentration provides a strong academic foundation in the core disciplines of public health and opportunities for students to apply knowledge and skills gained through real-world public health practice. The program is open to students with at least three years of experience in public health or a related health field.

The program will be offered in a cohort model, with a maximum of 20 students enrolling each fall and spring semester, and will take approximately 3 years to complete. Students who are new to the School of Public Health may apply for admission beginning in Spring 2012. Students who have completed a Certificate in Public Health may apply for admission beginning Summer or Fall 2012.
