The College for Public Health and Social Justice's Master of Science in Public Health (MSPH) degree is offered to those with terminal degrees (MD, DO, DC, DDS, DVM or PhD, licensed to practice in the US) who seek training in population based research methods to support their clinical research activities.
There are two concentrations to choose from:
The MSPH in Epidemiology includes a core of coursework in Epidemiology and Biostatistics, supplemented by a general course in the public health or health care system, and Ethical Issues in Public Health.
The MSPH in Behavioral Science includes core coursework in Behavioral Science Research Methods and Biostatistics, supplemented by a general course in public health or the health care system, and Ethical Issues in Public Health.
Each curriculum culminates in a research project and an oral examination. A complete description of the Research Project for MSPH/Epidemiology or Behavioral Science can be found here.
Any deviation from this plan will likely result in extending the length to degree completion. Self registration requires electronic approval from your faculty advisory to assure compliance to this plan. Failure to do so places you in jeopardy.
