Degree: Master of Public Health (MPH)

Major: Public Health

Concentration: Social & Behavioral Science

Program Format: The program is hybrid and requires approximately 50% face-to-face instruction and 50% online instruction. Students spend approximately 1-2 evenings per week in class. This format makes the Program very accessible to those working full time while still providing meaningful interaction with faculty and peers. The full-time program can be completed in 2 years and the part-time in 3 years (fall, spring, and summer terms).

 

Notes: Following the course sequence is mandatory to graduate in the allotted time for full/part-time students as MPH courses are offered only once per year. Students who fail to follow the course sequence will delay their graduation by possibly a year or more. International students who do not follow the sequence will not be granted extensions of their stay in the U.S. and may forfeit their ability to complete the degree.
