Public Health Leaders for a Changing Urban Landscape
The mission of the Master of Public Health program is to prepare dynamic public health leaders to work collaboratively with diverse communities to prioritize and investigate health concerns to achieve lasting social change, and foster health equity to promote the health and well-being of all people.
The Master of Public Health Program has one focus -- community health practice. The program provides a collaborative, applied approach to education, focusing on health promotion and disease prevention with individuals, families, communities, and organizations. The objective of the program is to provide students with the professional
knowledge and practical skills they will need to identify and address community health needs as a working public health practitioner.
