Fully-Online Health Promotion and Behavior Concentration
The Master in Public Health (MPH) degree in the fully-online Health Promotion and Behavior concentration (HPMB) is a 42-credit hour program of study. The content is identical to the in-person MPH HPMB degree concentration. Fully-online students should take most of their courses in the fully-online format, but may occasionally take an in-person course of their choosing.
The HPMB concentration will provide MPH students with the skills, knowledge, and experiences to promote health and prevent diseases within populations and communities. This MPH concentration will also provide students with a strong foundation for developing expertise in health promotion by specifically emphasizing public health, ecological, and behavioral contexts throughout the curriculum. Courses are designed to integrate theory, practice, and research.
How long will it take?
Minimum of 42 semester hours. The requirements for the fully-online MPH HPMB degree program are identical to the in-person MPH HPMB degree program.
All required classes to earn a degree in this MPH concentration can be completed online.
Minimum of 42 semester hours. All required courses – including MPH foundational core, applied practice and integrative learning experiences, and HPMB concentration courses – will be offered fully-online at least once each academic year. A limited selection of MPH HPMB concentration elective courses will be offered fully-online each year, allowing students to satisfy all MPH HPMB degree, concentration, and elective requirements fully-online. Students in the fully-online MPH HPMB degree program may occasionally register for in-person or hybrid courses if their desired course or elective is not available fully-online or offered in a preferred semester; though registering for in-person or hybrid courses should be limited (to maintain fully-online student status) and students will be expected to participate in all in-person requirements of the chosen course.
