The Master of Public Health (MPH) program provides students with the rigorous academic skills, practical experience and multidisciplinary studies that will enable them to meet the public health challenges of the 21st century.
All MPH degree students (except those in the COPHP program) take six courses as a cohort in the first year of study. These courses address foundational competencies required for the degree. Students will also complete required courses as defined by their area of interest.
The MPH Core Program Team includes a Director, Program Manager, and instructor teams for each of the courses.
