To ensure graduates are well prepared for present and future public health roles and demands, the online/on ground M.P.H. Program offers the opportunity to build knowledge and skills through the completion of a comprehensive core of courses as well as having the ability to deepen an area of interest through the selection of courses from electives in three areas: Global Health, Psycho-Behavioral Dimensions of Public Health, and Public Health Leadership. Students can choose to focus in one of those three areas or they can decide to take electives from all of those areas.
After the program's completion, graduates are prepared to deliver outstanding professional services; excel as leaders and managers; be sensitive to and understand diverse populations; and appreciate the importance of education, research, and policy-making in the dynamic field of public health. Public Health practitioners may assume leadership roles in hospitals/clinics, pharmaceutical companies, health insurance companies, and consulting firms. Other career paths include local, state, or federal health department administrators, health educator, policy analyst, and planner positions.
