The Zilber School of Public Health offers a Master of Public Health (MPH) degree to train the next generation of public health leaders in five vital tracks:
Community and Behavioral Health Promotion
Environmental Health Sciences
Public Health Policy and Administration
The Zilber School of Public Health is known for its emphasis on health equity, social and environmental justice, and community partnerships. The MPH degree program prepares students to make a difference in the public health field by building practical knowledge and skills, including the applied use of public health research to promote population health and health equity.
The MPH curriculum includes required core courses that help prepare students to analyze information and consider solutions to public health problems at the community, institutional and societal levels. Students then put their skills into practice through a required field experience and capstone project.
Students in the Master of Public Health program complete 42 to 48 credits (depending on the track). MPH students take a common core curriculum of 20 credit hours, including a 3-credit field experience and a 2-credit capstone, as well as a variable number of track-specific credit hours.
