Flexible format designed to fit your busy life
At the Colorado School of Public Health (ColoradoSPH), we believe that working professionals need the flexibility to advance their careers and that geography shouldn't be a barrier to earning an accredited, graduate education in public health. The online Master of Public Health (MPH) in Leadership and Public Health Practice is a great fit for professionals who want to hone their management, leadership and public health skills. For this program, we do not require GRE test scores, we offer all of the required courses online — in both asynchronous and synchronous formats — and we look for applicants with work experience. We do not run on a cohort model, so you can adjust your coursework on a semester-by-semester basis, if needed, to accommodate your work or personal schedule.
Practical, career-focused instruction
This program will prepare you for leadership positions in public-health-driven organizations in health care, government, non-profit and for-profit industries. With courses in all five core areas of public health, ranging from biostatistics to health policy, you’ll learn the fundamentals of the discipline. In addition, you’ll gain the management, budgeting, evaluation and public health administration experience you need to become an effective leader and manager. You can also tailor your coursework to your passions with nine elective credits. Our electives cover a range of hot topics in public health such as GIS mapping, public health informatics, communication for public health impact and more.
