Many career opportunities in the field of public health require a graduate degree, either to get a position, or be promoted within the industry. With this is mind, the Master of Public Health (MPH) degree from the University of New England (UNE) has been designed to give graduates a competitive edge, providing the knowledge and skills needed to solve increasingly complex national and international issues of public health.
The UNE MPH degree program is fully online and it accommodates both full-time and part-time students of all ages, and does not require a Graduate Record Examination (GRE) test score for admission. It is the only public health program in Maine that is accredited by the Council on Education in Public Health (CEPH).
The UNE is also accredited by the oldest US regional accrediting association: the New England Association of School and Colleges Commission on Institutions of Higher Education (NEASC CIHE).
The UNE MPH curriculum has been prepared to enable graduates to do everything possible to prevent both injury and disease, and to work towards promoting the health of communities and individuals. Health areas studied are comprehensive and include analysis, communication, ethics, epidemiology, financial management, global health, law, leadership, program development and program planning, and public health policy.
The UNE MPH degree program involves online lectures with discussions and assessments, as well as required reading, writing of papers, and completion of various projects.
Even though there are no on-campus studies, the public health practitioners, educators and researchers who make up the UNE MPH faculty facilitate and encourage online group discussions and communication via email. In this way students are given the opportunity to get to know one another, and they are able to share ideas, problems, and solutions.
A total of 46 credit hours are required for the UNE MPH degree, and it usually takes 18 months for students to complete the degree. There are eleven core courses, as well as five electives from a list of 14 possibilities, with an option for an indepenent/directed study course. The MPH curriculum includes an applied public health practice experience that provides students with the opportunity to work in public health organizations in their communities, and network extensively with the public health workforce prior to graduation.
