Fall 2021 we welcomed the inaugural cohort of our new MPH degree, and those who pursued the degree fulltime graduated in December 2022. Congratulations to our first ten graduates! These graduates were in one of the three concentrations we offer: Epidemiology and Global Health, Health Policy, and Data Science. In additional to core and concentration coursework, each student completed a field placement and a capstone research project. Projects spanned HPV self-testing to the relationship between sleep and hypertension to Chicagoland mosquito trends predicting zoonotic illnesses. If you are interested in applying to the MPH program within the Biological Sciences Division, please visit the MPH website: https://publichealth.bsd.uchicago.edu/ Our next admission deadlines are January 15 and March 15, both for a Fall 2023 program start. Join us, whether you want to become a practitioner of public health for your community or prepare for further studies in public health research.
The first cohort of our Master of Public Health (MPH) program has graduated!
