The MPH program at the Medical College of Wisconsin offers both a Master of Public Health degree and a Graduate Certificate in Public Health in a convenient, distance-learning format. These programs are offered completely online, meaning students do not need to go to campus or be online at specific times of day. This flexibility promotes self motivation and independence, and it allows students to maintain professional and personal commitments while completing their graduate education in public health.
The 15-credit certificate program consists of the five core courses. These credits may be transferred into the MPH program if the student decides to continue graduate coursework. The 42-credit MPH program focuses on community health but allows students to take electives in other areas, such as occupational health or bioethics.
