Master of Public Health, (MPH)

​​The MPH program is a professional degree that provides students with interdisciplinary educational experiences emphasizing the biological, epidemiological, environmental, sociological, behavioral, managerial, and policy dimensions of public health. Students choose specialized training in an area of concentration and engage in relevant community-based experiences in public health practice.

The MPH is part of the Graduate Public Health Program (GPHP), the first public health program to be accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) outside the Americas and is still the only CEPH-accredited program in the Arab world, Asia and Africa.
