The Program in Public Health at Northwestern provides several options to earn the MPH degree. Offering both part-time, evening courses for busy professionals and the option to complete the degree in one year of full-time study, Northwestern's MPH program prepares graduates for careers that span the boundaries between clinical care and public health. For more information on the MPH program, visit the Program in Public Health website.
In addition to a generalist option, MPH students choose between three concentrations that draw upon the strengths of Chicago and Northwestern's medical faculty:
- Epidemiology Concentration: equips students to design, implement and analyze population research and apply this knowledge in project management settings
- Community Health Research Concentration: prepares students who seek to work in academic and community settings to understand issues affecting health equity in communities and the role of engaging patients and community stakeholders
- Global Health: focuses on interdisciplinary coursework to prepare students to critically examine major health issues affecting global populations, for roles both domestically and abroad
