The mission of the MScPH program is to train outstanding public health professionals by offering a rigorous academic program in methods, research, and practice. 

Graduates of the program will serve as public health practitioners, research professionals, and educators, and will possess the competencies and professionalism to carry out broad public health functions in local, provincial, national, and international public and private settings.

McGill has an international reputation for excellence in university education. 

Their graduates are known for their strong methodological skills. They work in government, in the private sector, in NGOs and in not-for-profits.

The courses educate students in the core competencies for population and public health practice and research. 

This methodologically strong, two-year program includes training in:

  • Epidemiological methods
  • Data analysis and statistical methods

  • Research design
  • And more…

Students gain valuable experience through the required 14-week (minimum) placement in a local, national or international practice or research setting. The department works closely with students to secure practicum funding.

While the language of instruction is English, some practicum placement sites in Quebec require a working knowledge of French. The language for placement sites outside of Quebec is generally English.
