Master of Public Health (MPH) Overview

The Master of Public Health Program at the University of Virginia offers an individualized and interdisciplinary experience that focuses on the competencies professionals need to improve the health of communities and individuals. The curriculum provides graduate professional training in quantitative and qualitative research methodologies; health policy, law and ethics; translational and community-based research; and community engagement strategies.

The MPH program recognizes the value of strong relationships with community health organizations and community-based public health professionals.  Faculty and students are involved in a wide array of collaborative and service initiatives with community partners, including local, regional, and global projects. Students also have opportunities to present their research at state public health conferences and work on policy issues with public officials.

Students can complete the 42-credit hour curriculum through an intense 1-year program, or through a 3- or 4-semester program, depending on their goals and backgrounds. For more information, please contact the MPH admissions office at phsdegrees@virginia.edu.
