Public Health Online Degree (Executive MPH Format)

Executive Format

The online Public Health degree (MPH) in health policy and administration is a graduate degree program designed specifically for health care professionals with at least three years’ experience who have chosen a career path in the management of health services organizations such as hospitals, nursing homes, physician group practices and/or public health departments, among others. Each course is tailored to the application of its subject matter to the delivery of health care services.

The curriculum is a unique combination of public health, business-style and health systems courses that will enable graduates to apply business principles and practices to the operation of a health services organization. Many of the courses are taught by health care managers and consultants who have worked in health care services.

Students in the Executive MPH have diverse backgrounds including public health, hospital administrators, physicians, pharmacists, dentists, nurses, therapists, social workers, nursing facility administrators, and consultants.

Admission is limited to twenty-five highly qualified students. Students begin in the Fall semester and graduate after completion of 42 credit hours in 14 courses in May of the next academic year (five semesters in total).

The Executive MPH format is designed to maximize the transfer of knowledge between the health care professionals in each cohort through the exchange of ideas among students.

Approximately one weekend per month (Saturday & Sunday) is required for class attendance. The remainder of the course work is completed online in a confidential and secure environment. This hybrid format enables students not only the convenience of completing coursework online but allows for monthly in-class sessions with face-to-face interaction and discussion among Executive MPH students and faculty.
