Hofstra’s Master of Public Health (M.P.H.) offers an innovative curriculum and advanced training for the next generation of public health professionals. The program combines the expertise and resources of the School of Education, Health and Human Services, Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine and the North Shore-LIJ Health System, and features faculty from both the medical school and senior executives at the health system.
Program faculty include clinicians, practitioners, researchers, policymakers and policy analysts from Hofstra University’s Programs in Health Professions, the Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine and North Shore-LIJ Health System. They are innovative leaders in their fields, whose combined decades of experience in community, government and private sector settings enhances the study of core disciplines, such as biostatistics, epidemiology, environmental health, health policy and administration, and social and behavioral sciences.
Experiential learning is integrated throughout the program, including a culminating internship experience in a wide range of clinical and community settings, such as health institutions, governmental health agencies, private industry, and community-based advocacy, education and services organizations.
To accommodate full-time professionals, Hofstra’s M.P.H. program may be completed on a part-time basis in less than three years. The program features an innovative instructional model that combines distance learning, hybrid courses, and traditional, classroom-based instruction, over seven semesters (summer, fall, and spring).
