This two-year, full-time program requires a minimum of 48 credits, including electives chosen in consultation with the adviser. Part-time enrollment is also possible, and part-time students have up to five years to complete the degree.
Students learn how to influence policy and public opinion on health issues, develop community-based programs to prevent disease, work on issues related to a specific population, and advocate for and evaluate efforts to promote healthy behaviors.
This program gives students the flexibility to tailor the curriculum to meet their individual needs and interests. Faculty focus on multiple public health issues including: obesity, tobacco/alcohol, infectious disease, LGBTQ health, global health, and public health policy.
The classroom experience is brought to life through a required applied practice experience. Students conduct professional-level research projects in local, state, national and international organizations.
