Master of Public Health

Public health is the science and art of protecting and improving community health through health education, promotion, research, and disease prevention strategies. Public health is the knowledge and application of multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary, population-based methods of research, teaching, service, and practice involving various academic disciplines.

Indiana University School of Medicine offers a comprehensive curriculum leading to the Master of Public Health (M.P.H.) degree. This program provides students with a clear understanding of the roles of core disciplines in public health and knowledge of the theory and terminology used by these disciplines that allows effective participation in interdisciplinary public health efforts. Students obtain specialized skills in epidemiology, health policy and management, or social and behavioral health science. The M.P.H. Program provides a broad, contemporary perspective for future health care leaders to focus on prevention of injury and disease in populations by addressing issues such as tobacco and drug abuse, air and water contaminants, infectious and chronic diseases, and cost-effective use of health care technologies. The M.P.H. degree is 45 credits in length.
