University of Minnesota Online MPH
Twin Cities, School of Public Health

University of Minnesota Twin Cities School of Public Health offers a very specific MPH degree in maternal and child health. The University of Minnesota MPH degree program focuses on the health of mothers and children, as well as young people and families, including populations that are socially vulnerable.

There are three University of Minnesota MPH degree programs (the Standard Program, the MCH Epidemiology Program and the Online Program), all of which provide strong training in relevant public health practice. For example, one course is an online program designed specifically for professionals who already have an advanced degree, or three to four years experience, in maternal-child health or a related field. The course aims to provide graduates with leadership roles in many areas within the industry including research, non-profit organizations, healthcare organizations, and public health agencies.

The curriculum is designed to emphasize critical thinking skills, as well as a thorough understanding of research methods and ways to evaluate them. Health management and health policies and communications are also covered with additional emphasis on public health policies, programs and research that relates specifically to socially vulnerable populations.

To be accepted to the University of Minnesota’s Maternal and Child Health MPH program, applicants must have at least one year of experience in a community-based clinic, agency, or program that either focuses on managed care or public health. Applicants must also have a basic understanding of the psychological and/or physiological aspects of human development.

All students applying for the University of Minnesota online MPH degree must also hold an advanced degree already, or they must have three to five years professional experience in the field of maternal and child health.

Preferred performance levels are set by the university, including the need for a Grade Point Average (GPA) of at least 3.0 and a Graduate Record Examination (GRE) score of 300 (representing a combination of verbal and quantitative reasoning).
