Degree programs enroll new students in the Fall semester. The application deadline is January 6th. The MPH program may admit students on a rolling basis after that date as space in the program allows.

Master of Public Health

Prepares students for a career of leadership in public health. The MPH program has five degree tracks:

  • Biostatistics
  • Community and Behavioral Health Promotion
  • Environmental Health Sciences
  • Epidemiology
  • Public Health Policy and Administration
PhD in Public Health

Our PhD in Public Health offers two concentrations. The concentration in Community and Behavioral Health Promotion trains students in a social ecological approach to health promotion and behavior change from a public health perspective. The concentration in Biostatistics builds on the classic public health biostatistics skill and knowledge base and takes advantage of special knowledge of its faculty in the areas of genetics, bioinformatics and big data science

PhD in Environmental Health Sciences

Focuses on the environmental determinants of disease in the general population and occupational settings, and allows students the opportunity to investigate the interaction of such environmental factors with individual facets of disease susceptibility such as genetics, age, and development.

PhD in Epidemiology

Prepares students to conduct independent research to examine the distribution and determinants of health and translate epidemiologic findings into actionable interventions and policy strategies to promote population health, health equity and social justice. Coursework focuses on theory, quantitative and qualitative methods, community-engagement, and the intersection of epidemiologic research and public health policy.
