Public Health is the science of protecting and improving the health of populations, communities and the environment. Every day, millions of people across the globe suffer from preventable diseases, or injuries resulting in lower quality of life and often, unnecessary death.
Public Health professionals help prevent pandemics, epidemics, disease, disability, and premature death by confronting global health issues, responding to disease outbreaks, tracking the spread of disease, regulating life during a pandemic, and promoting healthy lifestyles through research, policy, education, and improved access to health care.

The Master of Public Health (MPH) is a professional graduate degree program for individuals seeking training and experience in applied public health. This 42-credit program is directly connected to local public health community, having strong working relations with community organizations and governmental agencies.
