The Master of Public Health Program features real public health issues as the foundation of students' learning, immersing participants in some of the most significant and complex public health crises that our country and globe have experienced. Our MPH Program offers a unique intersection between leadership, policy and sustainability. During this 12-month, case-based/experiential learning Program, students will have the opportunity to apply their previous work and health-related experience to discuss a wide-range of views and practices while gaining the knowledge and skills to lead in an ever-changing and increasingly challenging public health landscape.

The case method of learning is not about the traditional lecture-style classroom setting: it is about the student being an active part of the learning experience; that means learning by doing. It introduces complex and often ambiguous real-world scenarios into the classroom, forcing students to think and make decisions often with incomplete and inaccurate data. This prepares graduates for the dynamic conditions they'll encounter in their careers.
