Purdue University’s Public Health Graduate Program is an applicant for accreditation by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH). The accreditation review will address the MPH degree with concentrations in health statistics, environmental health (both offered on-campus only), and family and community health (offered online and on-campus).Other degrees and areas of study offered by this institution will not be included in the unit of accreditation review.

Combine Science and Practice

The online MPH curriculum covers topics vital for public health professionals, including:

  • Epidemiology
  • Biostatistics
  • Health system administration and management
  • Environmental health sciences
  • Behavioral and social sciences

In addition, the program requires students to complete a practicum—a 320-hour work experience that can be tailored to each student’s particular area of interest, and may be completed while still working. This practicum provides an opportunity to apply what you have learned in the real world and can serve as a foundation for future career goals.

The online MPH can be completed in a little over two years.

Fill a Growing Need for Public Health Professionals
