School of Health Sciences

Regarded as the largest private, non-profit online university in the USA, Liberty has been a pioneer of distance learning since 1985. It is also the world’s largest Christian university, founded in 1971 to cater specifically for the needs of Christ-centered students.

The university’s School of Health Sciences offers online masters degrees that have been designed to give students the expertise and skills they need to succeed in a hugely competitive contemporary marketplace. Continually updated, the master degree format is proven to be a very effective one, taking just eight weeks. Students have enormous flexibility and are able to complete their assignments 24:7, whenever they wish, without having to register log-in times.

The Virginia-based university offers more than 250 distance-learning degrees ranging from certificates to doctorates, and is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. There are a myriad of master degrees on offer, three of which are specifically geared to public health.

The Master of Public Health (Liberty University MPA degree) in Global Health focuses on biostatistics and epidemiology, but also covers public health administration, social and behavioral theory and research methods. It provides students with both practical experience and the necessary knowledge to move into a career in public health. A practicum is required, and has been designed to help develop both communication skills and leadership abilities.

The Liberty University MPA degree in Nutrition is aimed at bachelor graduates who want to impact society either locally or globally, helping to develop sociological perspectives regarding nutrition and health. The focus of this degree is in on food-borne illnesses, prevention of disease, as well as a variety of nutritional health-related disorders. It is a master degree that some people take to enter the mission field and gain access to “closed” countries.

The Liberty University MPA degree in Health Promotion is also ideal for would-be missionaries, as it adds to an understanding of health care, nutrition and prevention of disease. Students are taught how to both manage and educate other people in the fields of health and wellness and influence not only individuals, but also communities and schools.
