Master of Public Health (MPH) The public health profession focuses on preventing disease, addressing inequities and developing policies and programs that help communities achieve optimal health and wellbeing. Our program aims to educate and empower the emerging generation of public health leaders. As the most frequently awarded graduate degree in the public health profession, the MPH prepares students for applied public health practice and leadership in diverse environments such as local, state, and federal agencies, hospitals and clinics, community-based and non-profit organizations, research institutions and other agencies in both domestic and global settings.
The Master of Public Health at CWU is a 56-credit graduate degree, designed to be completed in as few as 2 years. Course delivery options are flexible, with distance education, hybrid, intensives, and online courses available. All students are required to complete a portfolio capstone with a project-based or research thesis, under the guidance of their faculty mentor.
Graduate students in public health can also choose to start the program with the Rural and Community Health Graduate Certificate, of which 15 credits may transfer in toward completion of the MPH degree.
GRE examination scores are not required for admission to this program.
Applications for both programs will be available at http://www.cwu.edu/masters/apply-cwu-graduate-school and priority deadline is February 1st.
