Degree Information

Introduction

The Master of Public Health (MPH) is a graduate degree that prepares you to work on a wide range of public health initiatives; policy advocacy, health education, institutional administration, treatment delivery and disease prevention are just some of the areas commonly explored in an MPH degree curriculum. Graduate students focus their studies in public health by choosing specializations. Joint public health degree programs are particularly popular at this level, with most graduates pursuing dual degrees in either clinical practice or social policy.

While all MPH degree programs require candidates to hold a bachelor’s degree, there are no universal coursework requirements to enter these programs. Public health degree students come from all backgrounds, from medicine and social sciences to law and humanities. The right public health degree program can prepare students to become clinicians, health educators, epidemiologists, family therapists or counselors.

Some students may find that an MPH degree on its own does not meet their precise needs. For such students, there are a number of joint MPH degrees and alternative degrees that may prove a better fit for specific public health careers and aspirations.

Dual Degree Options

  • MPH/MBA: Students immerse themselves in the managerial, policy-making and financial aspects of healthcare organizations.
  • MPH/MD: Aspiring physicians can pursue this joint medicine and public health degree in order to expand their clinical research and practices to address the health and epidemiology concerns of local or global populations.
  • MPH/JD: Attorneys can gain experience in health law and public policy to effect legislative change for hospitals, patients, and communities.
  • MPH/MSN: Nurses with advanced degrees can use a public health background to administer treatments and research health topics that affect groups of people.
  • MPH/MSW: Social workers with public health expertise can work with communities to address the crossover between social issues and health hazards, and, in turn, identify and implement preventative efforts.
  • MPH/PHARM: Pharmacists with a public health background explore treatment and disease management strategies and then determine how to best bring those strategies to the public.
  • MPH/DPT: Physical therapy physicians work to address rehabilitation efforts scaled to diverse populations afflicted by a range of injuries and disabilities.
  • MPH/MA: Graduate students pursuing a Masters of Arts can bring a diverse wealth of knowledge, such as unique cultural expertise, to aid in public health research efforts and projects.

Online Degree Options

The recent surge in opportunities for earning a master’s in public health online has made a significant impact on the field as a whole. Family, work and distance are no longer barriers to obtaining an online MPH degree; busy individuals in the most remote locations can further their education, so long as they have broadband internet. An online master’s in public health is an ideal option if you are a working professional with family obligations, or if you simply would like to complete your public health degree at a top university while continuing in your current position.

There is very little difference between campus-based and online MPH programs; modern technology allows for face-to-face communication with professors and live participation in lectures. In general, an online master’s in public health simply offers greater flexibility to schedule coursework on your own terms. Course requirements typically include active participation in discussions boards, submission of weekly assignments and viewing of either live or recorded lectures.

As more and more schools and students recognize the benefits of online education, many public health degree programs are also beginning to offer hybrid options as part of their curriculum. This format allows students to get the best of both worlds by taking in-person and online courses. Hybrid options are ideal for students who have enough flexibility to attend some lectures on-campus, but still require the option to choose an online course when necessary.

 

Accreditation

While some fields rely on multiple accreditation agencies to evaluate programs, the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) is the primary national agency that issues accreditation to public health degree programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels. CEPH evaluates the standards, outcomes, and quality of applicant schools and programs, based on objectives defined by its parent organization, the Association of Specialized and Professional Accreditors (ASPA).

The CEPH Accreditation Process

Schools or programs must first apply for accreditation, conduct an internal review of their own performance and then subject themselves to a CEPH peer review and on-site inspection. Next, CEPH collects public opinions regarding the school or program, publishes a report on the total findings, hosts an evaluation review meeting, and then issues an accreditation decision.

Once an MPH degree program or college becomes accredited, they are subject to ongoing reviews to ensure they meet CEPH standards, outcomes and objectives.

Schools vs. Programs

Due to academic and administrative differences, public health schools and public health degree programs are measured by different CEPH criteria:

  • Schools of public health offer diverse undergraduate and graduate programs spanning the field of health and medical disciplines. For instance, a school of medicine might offer graduate degrees in public health, clinical research, biomedical science, and healthcare administration.
  • Public health degree programs on the other hand, are narrower in scope. Students may still choose specialties like public policy or statistical research within these programs, but the degree conferred is standardized.

As of June 2013, CEPH instituted a process for granting accreditation to standalone bachelor's degree programs, or degree programs that are not affiliated with a larger School of Public Health or graduate program in public health. Undergraduate students should note that public health minors, associate degree programs, and professional certificates are not accredited by this agency.

Application Process

Graduate applicants to CEPH accredited schools that are members of the Association of Schools of Public Health (ASPPH) gain access to the Schools of Public Health Application Service (SOPHAS). SOPHAS is a streamlined applications system available for CEPH-accredited public health schools and programs. SOPHAS allows students to fill out a single, centralized application to multiple schools. This system can help you save a significant amount of time, allowing you to apply to a network of schools with a single application.

Whether or not you opt to use SOPHAS, you'll need to prepare unique application materials to each school. Carefully review the required application materials for each school well before admissions deadlines:

  • Online or print applications
  • Sealed copies of official transcripts
  • Official score reports from all required tests (GRE is the most common, however some academic institutions also accept the GMAT, LSAT, or MCAT)
  • Letters of recommendation from professors who know your work and interests well
  • Resume or curriculum vitae
  • Personal statement and/or research samples demonstrating your knowledge and experience in public health
  • If using SOPHAS, supplemental materials

Keep in mind that graduate applicants in public health are expected to have a few years of professional or volunteer experience in their field of interest. For instance, the Bloomberg School of Public Health at Johns Hopkins, requires candidates to have at least two years of postgraduate professional experience. Requirements at these levels involve significant time commitments; be sure to review admissions requirements well in advance.

Contact your local health agencies and universities to learn more about volunteer and internship opportunities near you or consider involved in a national service program:

Concentrations

Public health education programs are growing quickly in popularity. Overall, annual graduates from U.S. schools of public health rose 69 percent between 2000 and 2011. As the field expands, degree concentrations available to students at all levels are growing. Here are the most common and high-demand focuses in public health degree programs today:

  • Finance: Public health degree programs prepare students for managing the large-scale budgetary needs for public health delivery systems. Potential subjects include healthcare finance, health economics, and nonprofit accounting.
  • Marketing: Social media communications, grassroots organization, and media relations tie public health efforts together, creating strong bonds between stakeholders, administrators, and the public.
  • Organizational Management: Prospective healthcare leaders delve into managerial decision-making strategies, governance, performance analytics, and stakeholder awareness in organizational management concentrations.
  • HR Management: Students starting out in public health thrive when they are able to recruit effective and qualified talent. MPH students who pursue this specialization delve into employee selection, conflict management, labor laws, and staff retention.
  • Gender and Sexuality: This specialization focuses on the concerns of the LGBT community, often an underserved population across public health initiatives.
  • Research Methods: This specialization takes a research-intensive approach to crafting future public health policies and programs. Prospective courses prepare students to conduct targeted community surveys, statistical analyses, and ethnographic research.
  • Family Health: Students in a family health specialization examine how family units influence health, development, and nutrition in individuals. Possible topics covered include divorce, domestic abuse, and childhood development.
  • Health Education: Students who pursue this specialization plan, implement, and evaluate educational outreach programs for target demographics. Class topics include social media communications, community organization, and community nutrition.
  • Biostatistics: The public health sector has a strong need for biostatistics researchers who can identify community health needs based on collected data. Statistics must also be monitored in order to assess the continued effectiveness of a given program. Possible subjects include clinical trials, probability theory, regression analysis, and statistical theory.
  • Environmental and Occupational Health: Professionals with a background in this specialization ensure that schools, workplaces, and public facilities meet safety and environmental guidelines. Potential courses include workplace hazards, pollution assessment, chemical cleanup strategies, climate change research, and hazardous waste management.
  • Epidemiology: This specialization prioritizes disease prevention and treatment efforts across environments with a variety of economic resources, cultures, government infrastructures, and communities. Professionals in this field often become experts on vaccinations, infectious diseases, and cancer prevention.

Related Graduate Degrees

  • Master of Health Administration (MHA): These MPH degree programs are aimed at graduate students who wish to focus on the leadership and operations of healthcare organizations. The courses in these programs often focus on policy making, patient care ethics, financial management, and health information management.
  • Master of Science in Public Health (MSPH): This can be a more research-oriented route within public health, allowing students to focus on certain specializations that require scientific backgrounds, such as environmental health, biostatistics, or epidemiology.
  • Master of Health Sciences (MHS): This degree option allows researchers to delve further into the study of specialized public health areas, such as mental health, reproductive health, or molecular biology.

Top Online Master's in Public Health Programs

According to The Public Health Workforce, a report compiled by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, online learning is becoming an important tool for graduate level public health departments and continuing education providers.

Online master's in public health programs provide mid-career professionals a crucial level of flexibility. Maintaining a career while completing a master's degree full-time used to be unheard of, but today hundreds of public health professionals maintain their careers as they work toward their MPH degree online.
