Tulane University Online MPH
School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine

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.

Tulane University also has more than a decade of experience delivering high quality, graduate-level education through its distance learning options. Courses have a live, interactive character and small groups are encouraged to work together, networking with other professionals so they can share their understanding of the different experiences. In fact, the distance program follows a very similar structure to any other traditional degree programs, only courses don’t follow regular study hours.

The Tulane University MPH degree program options offered are aimed at mid-career public health professionals who want to further their careers in very specific areas. There are three MPH degrees offered online: Occupational Health and Safety Management; Occupational and Environmental Health, and Disaster Management.

The Tulane University MPH degree program in Occupational Health and Safety Management aims, primarily, to provide health and safety professionals with abilities that will enable them to move into leadership positions.

The Tulane University MPH degree program in Occupational and Environmental Health prepares health professionals with additional knowledge and skills they can use to promote health in the workplace and also recognize and prevent occupational-related injury and illness.

The Tulane University MPH degree program in Disaster Management has been designed to enhance the management skills of health professionals so they can move into careers that are disaster management focused. The skills taught focus on everything from planning and responding to the evaluation of disasters (both potential and actual) as they relate to public health.

The length of time the Tulane University MPH degree program takes depends on motivation and organization. As a norm they will be required to complete a practicum, though in some instances this may be waived.
