The Master of Public Health (MPH) provides a balance of academic theory and real world experience, ensuring students are prepared for a career in public health. The principles and methods of epidemiology constitute a foundation essential for policy development related to surveillance activities and prevention strategies. Students will learn how to design and conduct studies, analyze data, and present findings in a variety of formats and for diverse audiences, as well as how to integrate the social, biological, environmental and analytic approaches to understanding determinants of health in populations.
