Southwest Ohio’s First M.P.H. Program
The Wright State University Master of Public Health (M.P.H.) degree program incorporates a community-based, interdisciplinary educational program in public health through a combination of colleges and schools. Students can select one of four specialty areas:
- Emergency Preparedness
- Global Health
- Health Promotion & Education
- Public Health Management
The program is responsive to the educational needs of working public health and other health services professionals in southwestern Ohio who serve more than 2.8 million residents.
Education that Fits with Your Career and Family Commitments
The program has been carefully designed for in-career professionals as well as traditional undergraduate students. Students must complete a minimum of 42 semester hours for completion. While the core curriculum is grounded in traditional classroom instruction, web-based learning enhances the program. Courses are offered in the evenings and through technology-enhanced methods. The program can be completed in two and a half years by taking a full-time graduate course load of six hours per semester. All students complete a field placement and applied project or problem paper.
