Our skills-based MPH is accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health. Employers routinely say our graduates are well prepared for their jobs on day one thanks to the hands-on experiences and well-rounded education they receive here.

Students typically complete the program in about two years, depending on their course load, concentration, and pacing, with three program start dates per year (August, January, and June). Program requirements range from 42 to 45 credits, and a number of programs are also offered online. All students complete an Applied Practical Experience as well as an Integrative Learning Experience.
