Prepare for a Career in Public Health

In an era of environmental hazards, drug-resistant bacteria and rising rates of obesity, the field of public health is more relevant and critical than ever before. In health care, government and beyond, public health professionals work on the front lines of preventing disease and promoting healthy lifestyles in our communities.

The master of public health program at Elmhurst College will prepare you for a dynamic career in the practice of public health. This professional, multi-disciplinary program takes a holistic approach to the field, with a broad-based curriculum that uses an ecological framework to explore the intersections among biological, environmental, cultural, socioeconomic, political and health care system influences.

Designed for working professionals as well as recent college graduates, the MPH program focuses on broad areas of health administration and public policy. At the same time, you will have the opportunity to choose electives in an area of special interest.

The MPH is a part-time program that can be completed in 16 months or over a longer period of time. Offered through the Elmhurst College Online Center, the program is fully online except for the practicum, which students complete in a local setting.

As an MPH student at Elmhurst, you’ll explore the factors that influence local, national and global legislative and social policies. You’ll learn to apply broad-based, state-of-the-art quantitative and qualitative skills. You’ll develop collaborative strategies for solving health-related problems. And you’ll prepare for a leadership role in health promotion and disease prevention at the community and population level.
