Master of Public Health
Our public health programs in the College of Health and Human Services at Western Kentucky University have a long history in the state of Kentucky. At WKU you can obtain a graduate Masters of Public Health (MPH) degree in one of two concentrations- Health Education and Environmental Health. Our program is CEPH accredited and both program options require 42 graduate credit hours. Please click either discipline to learn more about our two concentrations :
Public health is a interdisciplinary profession that impacts nearly every segment of society. Epidemiology and biostatistics create the foundation of public health studies. Epidemiologists study the frequency, distribution, and determinants of diseases, while biostatisticians provide the analytic tools to advance our research capabilities.The health education concentration prepares professionals who design, conduct and evaluate activities helping to improve the health of all people in a variety of institutional and community settings. The Environmental health concentration allows you to learn how to assess a myriad of toxic substances in our surroundings in order to protect the population from their ill effects. Earning an MPH at Western Kentucky University gives you the tools to rise to leadership roles in your chosen area.
