The University of North Carolina at Charlotte’s Master of Public Health (MPH) program is an in-person program of study that prepares students to apply core principles of public health through evidence-based practice within a variety of settings and to advance the public health profession. As a result, our graduates advance the Department of Public Health Science’s mission, "Advancing health equity and well-being in an urbanizing world.”

Students develop specialized skills in one of 4 concentrations: Community Health Practice (CHPR); Epidemiology (EPID), Physical Activity & Nutrition (PANU), or Population Health Analytics (PHAN). The program prepares students to thrive in a variety of settings, including health-related agencies and organizations, hospitals, local and state public health departments, academic research centers/institutes, corporate disease management and wellness programs, non-profit agencies, and healthcare businesses/industries. The program values collaboration, community engagement, diversity, innovation, professionalism, health equity, and social justice in its pursuit of attaining population health and well-being.
