PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The Master of Public Health (MPH) program is a widely recognized professional credential for those seeking leadership and managerial positions in governmental, nonprofit, and private organizations in Public Health.

Faculty in the MPH program at CMU are committed public health professionals with broad and diverse national and international experiences in public health. They are recognized among their peers with awards and responsibilities on editorial boards and within professional organizations.

They take their job of preparing the next generation of public health professionals very seriously.

Through rigorous curriculum, research, and culminating experiences, the MPH program at CMU prepares students to manage and lead public health organizations and/or design culturally-responsive behavioral and social interventions to address health challenges affecting rural and underserved populations across the state, country, and globally. Our students gain a skills-based education to become leaders in their fields of specialization.

The field of public health is increasingly becoming a vital part of our daily lives. Public health practitioners make a difference in people's lives by researching and controlling the spread of diseases, running awareness campaigns and advising community members or setting policies to improve population health. We are thrilled to prepare our students for a rewarding career.
