for more information.
The MPH can be completed in approximately two years and combines
individualized study with a periodic on-site component. The onsite
commitment involves one month the first summer, three weeks the second
summer and a two-week period during a third summer. Four on-site weekend
seminars per year are also required for the first two years. Studies
continue while off-site using the web and email. Most electives are
available via partial or total distance learning. GREs are required, but
the program will accept results from earlier GREs if you have a copy.
Students have multiple focus options, such as global health, maternal
and child health, health education, nutrition, policy, environmental
health, or a focused electives option that allows you to mix and match.
Elective courses are also available to professionals in the field for
lifelong learning. The average class size is 5-10 people, so students
get the benefit of working very closely with their professors.
ExDP also offers a certificate option for those who are not sure they
want or need the full MPH. The Graduate Certificate in Public Health is
the first full year of the MPH, 25-29 credits, and all credits may be
transferred to the MPH if a student is later accepted to the MPH. GREs
are not required for the Certificate.
