- Your MPH Program
Loyola University Chicago in Maywood, Illinois has a fully online Master’s degree in Public Health (MPH). Available through the Loyola University MPH degree program, it has been set up to provide students with all the theoretical, methodological and practical experience needed to address the many public health issues facing the world today. Its emphasis is on racial & economic health disparities and bioethics.
The curriculum has been designed with a core public health course that includes practicum training in a typical public health setting. There are two possible concentrations, one that focuses on public health policy & management, and epidemiology. While the latter is a hybrid program that requires students to attend evening classes as well as study online, the public health policy and management course can be completed totally online (on-campus study available but optional).
Loyola University MPH degree program has been developed with guidance from the Council on Education in Public Health as well as the Association of Schools of Public Health Core Competency Development Project. The five core areas of knowledge that it focuses on are biostatistics, environmental health sciences, epidemiology, health services administration, and social and behavioral sciences. The interdisciplinary competencies it incorporates are varied, and include diversity and culture, communications informatics, professionalism, leadership, program planning, biology of public health, and systems thinking. These are all based on suggestions from the Association of Schools of Public Health.
While the master’s degree is public health focused, it has been designed to interest those who have training in economics, ethics, epidemiology, law, management, and even politics. It also offers a myriad of career opportunities ranging from non-profit community health agencies and government agencies, to professional medical organizations and health advocacy groups.
