Choose your program

Whether you choose to earn a Master of Public Health (MPH) degree or a certificate, you will gain the skills you need to serve your community with confidence, competence and compassion.

Select from coursework in areas such as community health, epidemiology and statistics. Study public health strategies within global populations and learn methods to identify risk factors to effectively improve population outcomes. Our courses will equip you for research and practice in a variety of contexts, including academic settings, healthcare companies and non-profit organizations.

Learn how to develop, analyze and advocate for health policies that strengthen communities in the United States and around the world. This MPH concentration also prepares you to oversee healthcare delivery systems in ways that improve healthcare quality and lower costs. Employment opportunities are commonly found in healthcare organizations, federal agencies and think tanks.

Elevate your practice of public health in shorter periods of time through specific skill development to more effectively and compassionately serve communities. Earn a certificate in Leadership & Health Management, Community Health or Epidemiology. At a fraction of the cost of a full degree program, a series of 3 courses is taken over a 6-month period and will set you apart from others in your field.
