The Department of Public Health Sciences offers a graduate degree program, the Master of Public Health (MPH), the Master of Science in Public Health Sciences for Clinical Professionals (MSCP), and a Ph.D. program.
The Ph.D. program will offer advanced courses of study in biostatistics, epidemiology, and health services research, supported by a core methodological curriculum in population-based research on human health.
The MSCP is a course of study in the theory, methods, and concepts of biostatistics, epidemiology, and health services research needed to design and carry out clinical and epidemiologic research programs. It is designed for the professional enhancement of individuals who already have doctoral-level expertise in Medicine and related clinical disciplines.
Starting with the incoming class of 2021, courses for the program will begin in the fall quarter instead of the summer quarter.
The Master of Public Health (MPH) program is designed to prepare students for careers as public health researchers and professionals. The MPH is broad in its scope, with students developing proficiency across several public health disciplines, including biostatistics, epidemiology, health policy and management, social and behavioral sciences, and environmental health sciences.
