Programme Overview

The Master of Global Public Health (MPH) program provides postgraduate education to prepare students for a career in several essential and innovative areas of interdisciplinary specialization through a sound foundation in the biomedical, engineering, and data sciences. The MPH program also recognizes the need of the practitioner to be cognizant of the social, behavioral, policy and regulatory dimensions of public health in the regional and global context of today’s world. This program, through its implementation science and engineering perspective, will prepare practitioners with a mission of innovation, implementation, education, and service as global citizens committed to health, disease identification, mitigation, and prevention. This is essential to meet global public health workforce needs in our region.

Program Goals and Objectives
The mission of the MPH is to prepare graduates to advance the public’s health through education, health promotion, and the improvement of health outcomes of populations and individuals domestically and globally by fostering the critical thinking, leadership, and decision-making of a knowledgeable workforce and scholars.

Core Values on which the programs are based:
– Excellence in pedagogy and mentorship of students;
– Excellence in recruitment of the highest quality faculty, staff, and students;
– Engagement in interdisciplinary education on campus, in the community, and in the region;
– Integrity, with mutual respect and consideration of cultural differences, religious and socioeconomic status;
– Inclusivity, through the recognition of the uniqueness of individuals, domestically and globally;
– Creating an environment that nurtures and fosters dialogs across the campus, community, and globe;
– Empowerment of global citizens, women and men, and communities to make a difference in transforming challenges to opportunities.

The curriculum was developed with the following program goals guiding its development:

1. Implement a competency-based curriculum and systematic assessment to ensure that graduates are prepared with the knowledge, values, and skills to assume leadership roles in global public health, as researchers and practitioners

2. Integrate experiential inter-professional teamwork with social and global perspectives into coursework, fieldwork, and thesis projects designed to foster the development of core public health competencies and a commitment to achieving health equity in community service in diverse communities

3. Link public health research and practice by engaging faculty, students, public health and medical professionals and the community in conducting public health scholarly projects and applied research designed to advance the field and practice.

4. Establish a synergy between disciplines with the focus of translation, implementation, and assessment outside the classroom.

5. Foster a holistic approach that respects the individual, the public, the global community, and the environment to ensure sustainability and responsibility and accountability.

Learning Outcomes
The following outcomes for the Programs in Global Public Health are based on the recommendations of the CePH, the accrediting body for Public Health. They also reflect the core public health competencies identified by the Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH).

Admission Requirements

A Bachelor’s degree in the sciences, medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, pharmacy, nursing or engineering, with a minimum GPA of 3.0 out of 4.0, or equivalent, is required for admission into the MPH program. Students with backgrounds in the social and behavioral sciences, policy, management and business can be admitted into selected tracks, but are subject to the core curriculum. Admission is also subject to the general university requirements for graduate programs. For those students whose grade records indicate promising ability, but who otherwise may lack adequate preparation in sciences, biomedicine, or engineering, admission may be granted under the requirement that additional probationary courses will be taken.
Depending on the specific track, a minimum of 42 credit hours* is required for the MPH, as defined by CePH and ASPPH . This consists of 24 credits hours of core courses, inclusive of 9 credits of research seminar and thesis research, and an additional 18 credit hours of coursework in a given track.
