Master of Public Health

The Master of Public Health degree program at the University of Kansas has campuses in both Kansas City and Wichita. Ranked as the sixth best community health graduate degree in the nation by U.S. News & World Report, we continually work to increase the quality and quantity of our teaching, research, and service.

The KU-MPH degree program is accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) and is a 42 credit hour graduate program with concentrations in epidemiology, social and behavioral health, environmental health sciences, and public health management. Students complete five core courses in epidemiology, environmental health, social and behavioral health, public health administration, and biostatistics. Four hours are devoted to required labs in epidemiology and data management, 12 hours are concentration specific, and five hours are general electives. The final six hours involve an internship experience and capstone.

KU-MPH graduates serve in a wide variety of public health fields, including clinical medicine, research, health education, disease surveillance and the academic setting.
