Master of Science in Public Health
The MSPH is an academic research degree designed for students who wish to prepare for further study at the doctoral level, or to prepare for research or technical positions in government, industry, academia, or private institutions. Studies will include many of the core disciplines included in the MPH degree with an additional emphasis on advanced research methods and quantitative analysis skills.
We are committed to transmitting the skill sets necessary to conduct effective public health research to all our students, understanding that such research may take place in academic, governmental, private sector, and international settings. Experience in public health research often involves similar skill sets as those needed by public health practitioners.
The 45 credit degree consists of 27 credits of core coursework, 12 credits of electives, and 6 credits for the capstone/culminating experience. The MSPH program is accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH).
