Public Health, MPH


The Master of Public Health (MPH) degree program is a 45-credit, competency-based curriculum.

The MPH program is to prepare individuals to improve the health of the population through evidence-based practice and research. Coursework, practice experience and the culminating experience/capstone will provide students with a foundation in the basic disciplines of public health, while allowing them to pursue individual interests and build upon existing strengths and previous experiences. Students can develop the intellectual and analytical skills to define, evaluate and solve complex problems encountered in public health and health care systems.

Transfer of Credits from Other MPH Degree Programs

A maximum of ten credit hours of coursework may be transferred for credit toward the MPH degree upon approval by the program director. All course transfers are subject to review by the relevant LSUHSC SPH Course Director. (See the School of Public Health Student Handbook for the procedure to transfer credits.)
