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.
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 and accelerated MPH programs.
