The Master of Public Health (MPH) is the most widely recognized professional degree for those wishing to enter or advance in the field of public health. Mason’s MPH program provides coursework in the five core disciplines of public health – epidemiology, biostatistics, health administration, social and behavioral sciences, and environmental health.
Students in the Public Health Practice concentration examine the social and environmental factors associated with improving population and community health with a focus on the application of evidence-based public health concepts. The curriculum and practicum for this concentration align with the Core Competencies for Public Health Professionals (2014) and prepare students for the Certified in Public Health (CPH) examination.
