Master of Public Health

Master of Public Health

Learn the skills to improve quality of life in communities by addressing the physical, social and environmental determinants of health at the population level.

The field of public health focuses on the prevention of injury and disease, rather than treatment, to improve the quality of life at the population level. In the online Master of Public Health program, you will learn how to design and implement strategies and interventions to protect and improve community health and population health through evidenced-based research and disease prevention.

You can choose from two areas of emphasis: food safety and biosecurity, which focuses on food safety, globalization and how international trade cooperation influences public health; or public health nutrition, which examines the role of nutrition in public health and population-based nutrition programs. In addition, you will complete a public health practice project during the program. Our Master of Public Health program is fully accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health.

DVM or doctoral-level professionals and DVM students may qualify for the infectious diseases/zoonoses emphasis in public health. Please contact
