Overview

Master of Public Health - Population and Public Health

There is no thesis requirement. Students complete 8 core courses, 2 elective courses, 2 seminars, and a workplace practicum or capstone research project (only students with extensive public health experience will qualify for the project). This program stream offers an advanced program of study for students from various fields who are interested in a professional degree which will prepare them for practical work in a variety of public health practice settings. The goal of the program is to prepare graduates - skilled in public health practice - to contribute to promoting health and preventing illness and injury in their community. The program objectives include: offering a combination of quality academic and professional training in different areas of public health ensuring the academic program is designed and delivered to the national standard identified in "Guidelines for MPH programs in Canada, July 2006" (Public Health Agency of Canada) ensuring graduates demonstrate proficiency in public health core competencies offering students an engaging and productive learning environment.

Students without extensive public health experience will be required to do a practicum. The practicum will take place over the duration of 12-16 weeks.  Students will work with an organization to study or work on the delivery of some aspect of public health and will be required to produce two deliverables: a term project summarizing their work and their findings; and a weekly journal in which the student is expected to detail their current activities as much as possible. Students will make a final presentation on their work placement to their classmates and the program director. Students can expect to be placed in the government, health care, or research sector at both local and national levels.
