The Master of Public Health (MPH) degree is the primary professional degree in the field of public health. The MPH degree is intended for students who plan careers as practitioners and leaders in one or more of the core areas in public health. Core academic public health areas include biostatistics, epidemiology, environmental health sciences, health services administration, and social and behavioral sciences.
The MPH program is one component of the Colorado School of Public Health which is a cooperative program between the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, Colorado State University, and the University of Northern Colorado.
