Overview

Master of Public Health

Delivered in an exclusively online format, a combination of synchronous and asynchronous teaching and learning techniques will be used to guide instruction and evaluate learning. The curriculum focuses on identifying the interdisciplinary elements required to design, implement and effectively manage public health systems. Research methods and analytical training essential to public health will provide a foundation in the conduct of research that will enhance evidence-based decision making. A unique aspect of the MPH program is its emphasis on infection control through its courses on Public Health Emergency Preparedness, Infection Control, and Epidemiology. The Social Marketing and Health Communication course will examine the complexities of public health administration in today’s technologically driven society. The program addresses the growing need to anticipate, manage and mitigate public health crises. We provide unique opportunities for small group learning, interaction with faculty and hands-on research experience. Our students gain in-depth training, knowledge and research experience through their thesis work or practicums while also benefiting from the broad, cross-disciplinary approach followed not only in the course work, but also in the scope and diversity of the research options available.
