MPH Program in Health Services

Our program's mission is to prepare leaders to improve health in diverse populations by solving problems in rapidly changing societies and health systems. We offer analytical and practical knowledge and skills to candidates who have some experience in health fields and who want to assume positions of greater responsibility in improving the public's health and the effectiveness of health care and population health services. Our program's primary focus is population health and the health care system in the United States.

The MPH program in Health Services consistently ranks among the best. Our 2-year program offers exceptional instruction in research methods, health care systems, health economics, health promotion, and the social determinants of health. By combining these disparate domains into a single degree, we afford students a unique opportunity for interdisciplinary study and work.
