About the Program

 

Indiana Wesleyan University’s 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 (5) core areas of public health, including Biostatistics, Epidemiology, Environmental Health, Health Services Administration, and Social and Behavioral Studies.

With a Master’s in public health in Indiana, you can build upon your Bachelor’s degree and be prepared for a career where you can influence public health on a local, state, national and/or global level.
