The Health Services MPH program balances 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.
The University of Washington is committed to excellence through diversity, and our program's curriculum promotes an understanding of the means by which social inequities and racism, generated by power and privilege, undermine health.
Most students write a traditional thesis as their culminating experience. Students in the Health Systems and Policy (HSP) concentration have the option of substituting a capstone project for the thesis.
Finally, students may choose a concentration in which they acquire comprehensive knowledge of theory, content, and methods.
