The Executive Public Health Practice program offers working professionals the opportunity to understand, assess, and manage population health in public health, health care, and human services settings. It provides an interdisciplinary One Health environment, bringing together the art and science of public health.
If you have the flexibility to take a full-time course load, it is possible to complete the curriculum in approximately three terms, 12 months. Most students, however, pursue their studies on a part-time basis and complete the program in three to four years. You have up to five years to complete the program.
At least 16 of the 42 credits of the program can be taken online. The School of Public Health offers a wide listing of elective courses during a concentrated three-week Public Health Institute offered every spring, during the May session (usually the last week in May and the first two weeks in June). Attendance at Public Health Institutes and participation in online classes allows you the flexibility to continue with your work and seek student learning opportunities.
Tailor the MPH to fit your practice and career goals with a combination of onsite and online public health courses. This applied, high-tech and high-touch program supports your career and educational goals and lifestyle.
