Program Details

The Master of Public Health (MPH) degree available from Michigan State University will consist of a completely online curriculum. MSU has also a two-year, 42-credit program for MPH available in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. In this program, students will take five of the six 3-credit core courses and one elective in Knowledge Village in Dubai. When students choose to not participate in the Dubai program and simply take the completely online course, they can choose to begin in any semester on a full or part-time basis.

Students will participate in core courses, electives, and culminating experience course work. Core courses include Introduction to Public Health, Biostatistics for Public Health, Epidemiology and Public Health, Public Health Administration, Social and Behavioral Aspects of Public Health, and Environmental Factors of Health. The culminating experience, which is the last part of the program, students in this MPH program will complete a Capstone paper. This paper should demonstrate the student’s ability to understand public health fundamentals as well as apply their learned knowledge from courses and the required Practicum/Internship.

In order to apply for this program, students need to have a Bachelor’s degree, standardized graduate or professional school test results, three letters of recommendation, a personal essay, and a Supplemental Information Form. Students will also need to complete a tutorial for Angel, MSU’s course delivery system.


Students must have a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university
