Master of Public Health Information Session Set for Dec. 1

An online information session about the U of A's new Master of Public Health is scheduled for 5 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 1. 

All majors are welcome to attend and learn more about the program from public health faculty in the Department of Health, Human Performance and Recreation. They will discuss M.P.H. career paths, admissions requirements and answer any questions.

The COVID-19 pandemic underscored the crucial role that public health professionals play in protecting and improving people's health worldwide. The College of Education and Health Professions added the new master's degree program to meet the increasing need for change agents in this field and health challenges within our state.

The professional, non-thesis graduate program offers two concentrations: Public Health Practice or Physical Activity. The program is currently admitting students for the spring, summer and fall terms.

In addition to the 36 hours of academic coursework, students must complete six hours of applied practice experiences. Classes are taught by accomplished faculty in epidemiology, aging and health, health behavior and health communications, physical activity, and exercise science.

Graduates will be prepared to work in community health clinics, state or local government health departments, NGOs, international health organizations, nonprofits, and policy and advocacy organizations.

Pre-register for the Dec. 1 information session or visit the M.P.H. page for more information about the degree program. The program is in the accreditation process through the Council on Education for Public Health to complement the U of A's accredited undergraduate degree in public health.
