Graduate more quickly and start making a difference. Our one-year MPH covers the same material as the online program, and is directed by internationally renowned public health thought leaders. With 100% online flexibility, collaborative research projects and USC resources, you’ll have ample opportunity to develop your public health expertise in one year.
Students may choose from six concentrations: Biostatistics and Epidemiology, Community Health Promotion, Global Health, GeoHealth, Health Services and Policy, and Generalist.Course structure and considerations
- The one-year online MPH requires that you take a minimum of three courses each term, which is 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.
The accelerated, one-year online MPH has the same admissions requirements as the two-year program.
