The Master of Public Health (MPH) is a professional degree program designed for students seeking an intellectually rich and challenging educational experience that will lead to a career in population health improvement in regional, national, or international settings including public health and other public agencies, health care delivery systems, health plans, community health organizations, and academic institutions.
The MPH program has two specializations–Population Health Research & Evaluation and Health Management & Policy. Both prepare students for work in population health improvement in the diverse communities of the Northern Plains and similar regions. Understanding the multiple determinants of population health–medical care, public health interventions, the social environment, the physical environment, and individual behavior–and learning how to optimize population health through research and evaluation or management and policy are complex and important undertakings. Regardless of the specialization a student selects, the curriculum provides training in population health analytics. Major changes have and will continue to occur in the public health and health care fields, and MPH graduates will require excellent analytical skills in order to contribute and provide leadership in the field.
UND is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. UND also holds many special accreditation's at the college, department, or program level.
