Maternal & Child Health Advanced-standing Program

Our school of public health offers one of the first, most highly-rated maternal child health MPH programs in the nation. Rooted in the principles of social justice, this program focuses on developing skills that serve the needs of vulnerable populations. Students work to improve the health of women, children, birthing people, and families around the world.

This advanced-standing MPH is designed for individuals with graduate degrees and/or three years of professional experience. The flexible 42-credit program can be completed by full-time students in two years, or may be pursued by part-time students. Students may obtain the degree completely through online courses or through a combination of online and in-person courses.

Advantages of the Program

  • Progressive Values. Our program is rooted in the principles of social justice and is committed to serving vulnerable populations.
