Course structure and considerations

  • The one-year online MPH requires that you take two to four courses each term, which can be equivalent to a 40-hour-per-week course workload, with a practicum during the fourth and final semester.
  • The fast-track program has a summer start date in May. Students are accepted and notified on a rolling basis.
  • For a successful degree journey, it is recommended that students do not work when taking the one-year fast-track MPH.

One-year online MPH requirements

The accelerated, one-year online MPH has the same admissions requirements as the two-year program.
