Creighton University has a long history of providing highly respected health science degree programs across a variety of fields. The online Master of Public Health is an interdisciplinary degree that focuses on the foundations of contemporary public health with courses in community-based participatory research, public health ethics and public health systems management.

This MPH is a fully online program (no residency requirement), and is built on a dynamic core curriculum and offers two concentrations to choose from through which students can customize their degree to match their interests and career goals including:

  • Health Policy and Ethics: From access to health care to health-related law and health care reform, this concentration explores public health at a legislative, institutional and ethical level. Graduates will understand how health and well-being can be influenced by government and private action and how ethical systems can be created through policies and laws that impact health care and public health.
