ODU's Master of Public Health (MPH) is an interprofessional degree program. That means you will connect with students, international and community organizations, and health professionals.
You will complete both didactic and experience-based courses. This will give you a solid foundation of public health knowledge, plus the skills to apply that knowledge in areas such as healthcare management, population-based research, and the community practice of public health.
Focus your studies with one of three concentrations. Our online MPH program culminates in a practicum based in a community organization, so you can practice your new skills and knowledge in real world situations.
Full-time and part-time study is available. This program can be completed in two years with full-time study.
ODU's MPH program is fully approved by the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV) and fully accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH). To see the CEPH accreditation report or ask questions about this accreditation, please visit the department's website.
