The University of Kansas Master of Public Health program (KU-MPH) is a fully accredited, 42 credit hour graduate program with concentrations in Epidemiology, Social and Behavioral Health, Environmental Health Sciences and Public Health Management. The program has been accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) since 1998 and is offered through the Departments of Preventive Medicine and Public Health at the University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City and the University of Kansas School of Medicine-Wichita in Wichita. KU-MPH is also the only fully accredited MPH program in the state to become member of the Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH).
Our program mission is to provide teaching, research and service activities that prepare public health practitioners, health care providers and researchers to develop and apply population-based and individual approaches to maintaining and improving the public's health in the Heartland and the nation.
KU-MPH graduates serve in a wide variety of public health fields, including clinical medicine, research, health education, disease surveillance and the academic setting.
