The UNF MPH program currently offers two concentrations:
Epidemiology and Health Promotion/Health Education. The general curriculum for
all MPH students includes coursework in the 5 core areas of public heath
(Health Behavior, Biostatistics, Epidemiology, Health Services Organization,
and Environmental Health), plus additional coursework in Research Methods. The
Epidemiology curriculum includes advanced epidemiology and biostatistics
courses. The Health Promotion/Health Education curriculum includes courses in program
planning and evaluation. The curriculum focuses on knowledge and skills for
determining, understanding, and modifying factors that influence population

MPH Program is offered in a hybrid format. Each course is offered once per
academic year in one of three ways:
face-to-face; 2) distance learning; or 3) hybrid. Face-to-face courses meet on UNF campus,
typically one night per week, 6:00-8:45pm.
Distance learning courses are offered online with no more than 20% of the
classes meeting face-to-face. Hybrid
courses are a combination of the first two methods, with no more than half of
classes meeting face-to-face. This
format makes the UNF MPH Program very accessible to those working full time
while still providing meaningful interaction with faculty and peers.

Students should be aware that admission into any graduate program is granted on a competitive basis.
