Welcome

Welcome to our online Master of Public Health (MPH) Program, where you may earn your MPH online with no campus visits required!

The program is designed for:

  1. Individuals who are employed in public health and related agencies and organizations
  2. Working physicians, nurses, social workers, nutritionists, and other health professionals

Candidates for the program are either geographically distant from Gainesville or unable to take the time away from their jobs to take courses in the campus-based program.

The online MPH provides a concentration in Public Health Practice.  (Other MPH concentrations are only available in our campus MPH program.)  Highlights of the program include:

  • Two options for program length, depending on prior degrees
  • A curriculum designed to provide competence in essential public health service areas
  • A range of contemporary courses in epidemiology, environmental health, health management, health policy, biostatistics, and the social and behavioral sciences, with a focus on applications to public health practice
  • The most up-to-date and user-friendly software
  • Detailed online handbooks to guide academic and technical applications
  • Ongoing opportunities to interact with course faculty and technical support staff
  • Integrative internship experiences tailored to individual goals
  • Opportunities to visit the UF campus and interact with other MPH students and faculty

The University of Florida has been offering an online certificate in public health since 2006. We launched the online MPH program in January 2010, and both programs continue to grow.  Our experience with online students has provided us with opportunities to adjust our online course delivery techniques to be as user-friendly as possible.
