The Master of Public Health (MPH) Program is looking for tomorrow's aspiring leaders and change agents who want to shape public health. In this intensive 12-month program, students will be given the skills they need to take their careers to the next level and see their goals realized.
As a Master of Public Health student, you will learn from a diverse group of experts and peers through case-based and experiential learning. Opportunities such as field trips and 12-week practicum will give you valuable, real world experience.
If you are thinking of pursuing a Master’s degree it is important to know the differences between undergraduate and graduate school prior to applying.
How is Graduate School Different?
- Student assumes major responsibility for learning
- Focus on broader concepts rather than fine details
- Critical thinking and application, not memorization
- Understand the connection between theory and practice (theory informs practice; practice informs theory)
- Make evidence-based decisions
- Develop practical skills and competencies with long term understanding
- Become comfortable with uncertainty
The MPH Program has received accreditation by the Council on Education for Public Health.
