Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana, offers an online Master of Public Health (MPH) degree via its Department of Tropical Medicine, one of the oldest of its kind worldwide. Consequently, graduates are well equipped to work in a range of work environments, from private practice to non-governmental organizations, and also for the US and other government.
