The Master of Public Health (MPH) Program trains public health professionals to measure, assess and manage the ever-increasing complexity of population and public health issues. It offers graduate students integrated learning opportunities in the five core disciplines of public health:
The MPH is a professional course-based degree with a practicum. As of the 2011-2012 academic year, students are required to complete a minimum of 45 credit units on campus (48 credit units for students without a clinical health sciences qualification), consisting of the 8 core classes (24 credit units), the practicum (6 credit units) and 15 credit units of additional courses related to their area of interest. The program is designed for completion in 20 months of full-time study. Students may also choose to study part-time over a maximum of 5 years. Please note that failure to attend PUBH 804 - Foundations of Public Health course will result in possible delay in graduation. The curriculum is currently under review and subject to change. Students without a clinical background also need to complete a course in Public Health Human Biology.
Please note that students who began their programs before August of 2011 will still be subject to the requirements of the old MPH program.
