Public health for everyone — equally

If you’re committed to improving health outcomes for everyone — and passionate about improving health access and equality — then the field of Public Health needs you. When you join UVM’s top-ranked online Public Health program, you’ll learn to ask provocative questions about the ways in which housing, racism, health policy, and the environment impact population health. And you’ll explore how an interdisciplinary approach that blends public policy, research, and population health science is critical to implementing public health interventions that prioritize the lived experiences of diverse populations.

Studying with classmates from diverse regions, backgrounds, and life experiences adds invaluable richness to the online learning experience.

Make a difference in diverse fields

Developed in collaboration with the Robert Larner, M.D. College of Medicine at The University of Vermont, our 42-credit, online Master of Public Health (MPH) degree blends public policy, research, and population health sciences to give students a 360° picture of the public health landscape. Students can choose a Generalist MPH degree or an MPH with a Concentration in Global Health Leadership. All graduates of our program will be fluent in public health policy that will empower them to make a difference in diverse fields – Behavioral Sciences, Biostatistics, Environmental Health, Epidemiology, and Health Services Administration. Students in the Generalist MPH Program Students take 9 credits in three elective courses, with flexibility to pursue the Public Health area of most interest. Students in the Global Health Leadership Concentration take 9 credits in three Global Health-specific courses, developing analytic and practical skills for a career in this fast-growing field.    

Full-time students can complete the MPH in as few as 15 months and up to five years. Students who start the MPH in the summer session can complete the program in four semesters.
