The Master of Public Health (MPH) is a CEPH-accredited 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 Analytics and Health Management & Policy. Population Health Analytics prepares students to produce convincing and scientifically sound information that will lead to population health improvement. The course of study includes training in research and evaluation methods, biostatistics, informatics, and communication of scientific results. Students learn how to assess population health, evaluate the effectiveness of population health interventions, and monitor health improvement policies. The Health Management and Policy specialization prepares students for managerial careers in the current public health and health care environment. Students gain the knowledge and skills needed to manage public health and health care systems effectively and efficiently, analyze health system policies, and communicate successfully to effect improvements in health systems. The curriculum for this specialization is offered in partnership with the College of Business and Public Administration, which adds depth to the faculty expertise and course offerings available to MPH students.
