The Master of Public Health in Public Health Leadership is a 42 semester credit hour skill-based program designed to transform students into the public health leaders of tomorrow. Whether pursuing public health work in a governmental, non-governmental, profit or non-profit capacity, our graduates will be equipped with a skillset that will enable them to emerge as prominent leaders in the field. The Public Health Leadership MPH will equip graduates with a set of interdisciplinary skills to tackle issues at the heart of population health, community health, health equity, and a host of other public health issues. Graduates are prepared to effectively engage communities as partners to strengthen their capacity to change social and environmental conditions. The Master of Public Health (42 credit hours) is an interdisciplinary degree limited to three types of applicants: 1). dual-degree students currently enrolled in a master’s or doctoral program other than an MPH; 2) holders of an advanced degree, e.g., PhD, DO, MD, JD, DVM, MSN, MBA, PA, PharmD; or 3) persons with three or more years of substantive, professional experience in a health field.
This program is completed on a part-time basis. For dual-degree students, courses from their other degree program can be used as electives in the MPH program.
