Loma Linda University Online MPH
School of Public Health

The Loma Linda University, located in Southern California, blends faith and learning in an effort to continue the healing and teaching ministry of Jesus Christ; to make man whole. The LLU School of Public Health believes that wholeness is the harmonious relationship existing when healthy individuals thrive in resilient communities that are supported by sustainable systems of health.

The LLU MPH program prepares its students to view public health challenges from a global lens and with an eye on equity. We offer this learning experience in our online Master of Public Health (MPH) degree.

The MPH program at LLU is designed to provide broad preparation in the fundamentals of public health, while offering many opportunities for specialization. The MPH degree is offered with major concentrations in:

  • Biostatistics
  • Environmental & Occupational Health
  • Epidemiology
  • Global Health
  • Health Education
  • Health Policy & Leadership
  • Lifestyle Management (online only)
  • Nutrition
  • Population Medicine

We are also the only school of public health to offer a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree program in Healthcare Administration.

The Health Education MPH focuses on educational, interpersonal, community, and legislative factors that promote positive health behaviors. The curriculum emphasizes interventions based on scientific data, as well as established behavioral and learning theories that promote public health through the processes of education and community organization.

The Global Health MPH prepares students to become committed professionals who are both technically competent and cross-culturally skilled in creating and facilitating sustainable health and development programs in diverse settings and populations. The program’s extensive network of global and local faculty and organizational resources affords a broad spectrum of options for students to learn and practice the “art and science” of global health.

The Biostatistics MPH includes courses in computer programming, and epidemiology. This degree curriculum is intended to prepare graduates for a career in public health, including the collection, management, and interpretation of health-related data.

The Lifestyle Management MPH prepares graduates to apply skills acquired in the program to enhance their current clinical knowledge and skills in medicine, nursing, clinical psychology, osteopathy, pharmacy, or other health professions. They are academically prepared to apply preventive methodologies to chronic diseases and risk factors; conduct individual health assessments; provide medical lifestyle counseling; properly evaluate and apply lifestyle medicine-related research findings, and lead and evaluate health promotion projects.

The Epidemiology MPH provides theoretical and practical training applicable to a variety of public health issues. Although epidemiology is a relatively young discipline, this collection of investigative methods has become an integral part of public health, as epidemiological findings permeate all fields of human health.
