MPH, Concentration in Rural Public Health Practice (Online)

The 42-unit program, available to any student seeking an MPH degree, also includes training in core public health concepts.

All of the courses required for this concentration are available in an asynchronous “distance accessible” web-based format using Blackboard. This allows a student to enter and complete this program from home or other remote location.

Completion of all course requirements, including the two final projects, ensures that graduates have attained the MPH core competencies and the MPH with a concentration in Rural Public Health Practice competencies.
