Choosing a Program
Pursue the MPH or DrPH degree if you're interested in practical application. These interdisciplinary degrees prepare you to become a well-rounded public health professional, ready to assume a position in state or local health departments, health care or managed care organizations, community based organizations, consulting firms, or health-related non-profit agencies. Both degrees feature real-world experience in the form of intensive internships or experiential learning, so you’ll enter the workforce with a robust resume.
If you're interested in a research or academic career, explore our MS and PhD degrees. These degrees are designed to focus on your research interests. Under the guidance of a faculty member, you’ll conduct research on a chosen topic, which culminates in a written thesis or dissertation.
Enrolling in a certificate allows you to explore graduate study before fully committing to a master’s degree program, enhance your current profession, or develop a deeper understanding of a specific topic.
