Online Master's of Public Health
About the Program
The Indiana Wesleyan University Master of Public Health (MPH) is a 46 credit hour graduate program designed to provide students with a thorough understanding of each of the five core areas of public health including:
- Environmental Health
- Health Services Administration
- Social and Behavioral Sciences
The MPH program is designed to prepare students for a career where they can influence public health on a local, state, national and/or global level. Delivered from a distinctly faith-based foundation, students will value, understand and apply the inter-related social-behavioral theories and contextual factors needed to address the complex health problems of 21 century households, communities and organizations.

design, analysis and synthesis to address population-based health problems

Regular and Fast Track Options
Indiana Wesleyan University's Master of Public Health program is an entirely online degree offered through a well-recognized instruction modality. Students have the option of taking one eight week course at a time through the MPH Regular path, allowing them to earn a degree while maintaining their personal and professional commitments. Students wishing to complete their degree in under two years can pursue the IWU's MPH Fast Track option, which enables individuals to complete one to two courses within an eight week accelerated session.
Regardless of the chosen speed, students will engage in a hands-on, mentored experience in a public health setting which can be arranged to conveniently coincide with ones work and life.
