This unique full-time program enables you to integrate the philosophies, functions and competencies of the fields of public health and business to target cost-effective health care and public health approaches.

The curriculum will prepare you to:
- Assess the public health needs of a defined population
- Analyze, develop, and implement targeted health policies and programs
- Serve as a change agent within the industry
- Take a leadership role in your organization and community
The program begins in July when you’ll take your summer courses with the full-time MPH students. During the fall and spring, your coursework will include an integrated curriculum comprised of public health and business courses. During the second summer, you’ll complete an internship at an organization where you’ll apply your business and public health education in a real-world setting. You’ll have the option to return in the fall for coursework or, if you prefer, continue with the internship into the fall and enroll in courses in late October.
Students may elect to pursue a 21-month or 23-month option to complete the program.
