Master of Public Health (MPH)

The Master of Public Health (MPH) degree prepares graduate students to work in a variety of local, state, national, and global public health research, practice, and policymaking settings.

Students gain expertise in the core domains of public health, investigate and address the determinants of health using data science, and develop novel and effective avenues for disease prevention and health promotion. The program combines foundational courses in public health with additional courses in data science, qualitative research methods, leadership, cultural understanding and health, and policymaking. Students gain knowledge and skills through coursework, experiential learning opportunities, research projects, and engagement with traditional and non-traditional partners to pursue a healthier world. The MPH program is designed to meet the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) accreditation requirements.

MS in Population Health

The MS in Population Health degree prepares graduate students to investigate and address health determinants using data science and develop novel and effective avenues for disease diagnosis and prevention, health promotion, and intervention. The program combines foundational courses in population health with additional data science, qualitative research methods, population health survey methods, research ethics, and policymaking. Students gain knowledge and skills through coursework, experiential learning opportunities, research projects, and engagement with traditional and non-traditional partners to create a healthier world. The MS in Population Health is a CAHME certified population health management program.

Ph.D. in Population Health

The Ph.D. in Population Health degree prepares doctoral students to investigate, integrate and address health determinants using data science and develop novel and effective avenues for disease diagnosis and prevention, health promotion and intervention. The program combines foundational courses in population health with additional data science, qualitative research methods, population health survey methods, research ethics and policymaking. By providing a strong disciplinary and methodological foundation in population health through coursework, experiential learning opportunities, research projects and engagement with traditional and non-traditional partners to pursue a healthier world, the Ph.D. program prepares students to pursue an independent line of inquiry and develop their own body of research.  All Ph.D. students will be fully funded.

Graduate Certificate Programs

The graduate certificates in Population Health and in Global Population Health will prepare students to learn and apply graduate-level introductory concepts and methodology in population health and global population health. Certificate programs are ideal for students who may not be ready to commit to a Master's program.  The 12 credits earned through the certificate program can be applied toward either the MPH or the MS in Population Health.
