College of Public Health
A multi-disciplinary faculty prepares students for public health practice in five core areas: biostatistics, epidemiology, health administration and policy, health promotion sciences and environmental health as well as two specialty areas, interdisciplinary public health and public health preparedness and terrorism. Professional degrees offered by the College are the Masters of Public Health (M.P.H.), the Master of Health Administration (M.H.A.) and the Doctor of Public Health (Dr.P.H.). Graduate degrees offered are the Master of Science (M.S.) and the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.). The College also offers a professional certificate in public health targeted toward those who can benefit from formal public health instruction, but for whom the M.P.H. degree is either not desirable or necessary for their career trajectory.
