Curriculum

The Maternal and Child Health MPH program has two flexible curriculum options. Students in either the Advanced Standing or Standard Tracks may complete their degree entirely online, entirely in-person, or by taking a combination of online and in-person courses.

Choose from two Maternal and Child Health MPH emphasis areas:

  1. Standard Track: (48 credits) Ideal for students without advanced degrees and who have limited professional experience. Students may complete their degree online, in-person, or through a mix of both.
  2. Advanced Standing Track: (42 credits) For students who either have an advanced degree (e.g., MD, MS, MSW, MEd) or who have at least three years of professional experience related to maternal and child health or public health. Students may complete their degree online, in-person, or through a mix of both. Advanced standing students may matriculate in fall, spring, and summer.

The School of Public Health has revised their curriculum across programs and divisions, in order to meet the new guidelines issued by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH). Students who enroll in Fall 2018 or later will meet the following revised curriculum:
