Public health degree concentrations

The MPH online offers two concentrations to focus your public health curriculum:


Epidemiology is focused on investigation and exploration, offering you the opportunity to create public health studies for specific diseases, analyze key data points, and report on your findings. It can include the study of infectious or chronic diseases and other public health issues such as disabilities and social and environmental concerns. Epidemiologists have a passion for disease investigation, collecting data, and analyzing statistics.



Health Policy and Management

The study of health policy and management will introduce you to differing perspectives on the delivery of care to various populations. It includes analysis of health care ethics and economics, as well as the development and implementation of policies and programs in light of current and emerging needs. People in health policy and management are concerned with affecting change through health care policy, how health policy is interpreted, and how it relates to health services in their community.


Hear what our students are saying:

“I work for the Dept of Public Health and [chose to do my MPH because] I would like to participate more in the investigation piece of communicable diseases and have more responsibilities…I have been able to apply social determinants of health and its impact on some of my work, and why it is important to pay attention to its impact. I have recognized certain patterns in environment, location, race, ethnicity, and other determinants at work…”  Read more.
