Master of Public Health (MPH)
Working Together to Change the World of Public Health
The Master of Public Health (MPH) Program is a professional degree program that is administratively based in the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health within the School of Medicine at the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB). Accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH), our 42 credit hour program has three concentrations: Community & Population Health, Epidemiology, and Global Health.
All students enter the program in the fall term which begins the first week of July. This requirement allows students to complete the program within the required time limits. Full-time students can take as little as 18-months to complete the program. Part-time students can take approximately 2 ½ years to complete the program.
Building upon the rich history and tradition of excellence of the School of Medicine as well as the dynamic academic community, the MPH Program is vibrant and growing. The MPH Program enjoys a strong research environment with outstanding university resources. Being part of a unique campus environment has made it possible for broad-based interdisciplinary scholarship, research, practice, leadership, and policy. In addition to our MPH degree, we offer joint degree with the six professional schools on campus.
MPH Informational Webinar Sessions
The MPH Program will host free webinar sessions for prospective students of public health. During each session, program faculty, staff, and students will share details about the CEPH accredited program and prospective students will have an opportunity to ask questions. If you wish to participate, send the MPH Program an email noting the session date that you wish to attend. Once we receive your request, we will send you the webinar link to confirm your attendance.
