Master of Public Health
Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University

Program Details

The online Master of Public Health helps students progress rapidly up the career ladder with basic public health competencies and a focus on public health practice.  The program connects public health with additional basic science and health care disciples, such as pharmacy, allied health sciences, medicine, dentistry, and nursing, which provides a more meaningful consultation with patients.  The curriculum supports research and public health practice with a focus on health disparities that disproportionately impacts the poor and underserved, including cancer, cardiovascular disease, infectious diseases, and access to care.
