The MPH program at Augusta University (formerly Georgia Regents University) is a comprehensive educational experience designed to prepare professionals with an interdisciplinary knowledge base and skill set needed to improve health care delivery and promote community and population health.
Our program currently offers concentrations in 1) health management; 2) health informatics; 3) environmental health; and 4) social and behavioral sciences. Our comprehensive curriculum is designed to include core public health courses; interdisciplinary concentration and elective courses; an MPH internship (field practicum); and MPH capstone (culminating/research experience).
Our largely online/hybrid MPH program attracts students from diverse clinical and non-clinical backgrounds, including medicine, nursing, allied health, education, finance, and information systems. The program can be completed in two years of full-time study. Part-time degree completion options are available. Our curriculum is designed to support the working professional in pursuit of a graduate degree. Graduates are prepared for leadership roles in health care organizations, public health and environmental health agencies, community-based organizations and the pharmaceutical and information technology industries.
The Augusta University MPH program is situated within an academic health center, which enables us to offer unique health services research collaborations within the Augusta University Health System. Correspondingly, student internship opportunities are readily available within Georgia Regents Medical Center and the East Central Health District, within the Georgia Department of Public Health. The MPH program received its initial accreditation from CEPH in 2009.
