MPH Program Description
The College of Health and Human Services offers an interdisciplinary curriculum leading to the Master of Public Health (MPH) degree. The mission of the MPH Program at the University of New Hampshire is to provide society with knowledgeable and professionally educated people to enhance the public health infrastructure and the health of populations in northern New England, with a special focus on New Hampshire. To achieve this mission, the UNH MPH Program is dedicated to the following three goals in the areas of instruction, research, and service:
- Instruction: To prepare public health professionals for multiple roles in public health organizations and policy development.
- Research: To contribute to the knowledge of the field of public health through the development of new information and applied research, with a particular focus on NH and northern New England.
- Service: To provide technical assistance and professional service to public health programs in both private and public sectors, particularly in NH, but also regionally and nationally.
This Program targets working public health professionals and recent undergraduates with an interest in a public health career trajectory. The Program is accredited by the Council on Education in Public Health (CEPH), the national association for the accreditation of programs and schools of public health.
The MPH Program is only offered at the University of New Hampshire Manchester campus through the Center for Graduate and Professional Studies. Classes are offered on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. The program can be completed on a part-time basis over two years. Students have up to six (6) years to complete the degree program.
Since the MPH Program is a part-time program, it does not meet the full-time study requirement for international students with F-1 or J-1 visas.
