Curriculum

The Maternal & Child Health MPH program has three 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 three Maternal & 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. Epidemiology Track: (48 credits) Emphasizes quantitative methods and research, training students to become epidemiologists with expertise in data collection, data analysis and data interpretation specific to maternal and child health populations. In-person classes are required.
  3. 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. Read more about the Advanced Standing Track
