Master of Public Health / Health Promotion & Behavioral Science
San Diego State University

Program Details

The online Master of Public Health in Health Promotion and Behavioral Science was developed for early- to mid-career professionals with enough flexibility that students can study on their own time while continuing to pursue their careers as they learn to develop, implement, evaluate, and critique public health programs.  Courses teach students to use multiple sources of data to assess the health needs of a population, identify the most efficient and effective intervention strategies for improving population health, evaluate health promotion programs, and develop scientific papers and presentations.  Graduates can identify personal, social, political, and environmental determinants of health-related behaviors, morbidity, mortality, and health disparities.
