The MPH is part of the Graduate Public Health Program (GPHP), the first public health program to be accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) outside the Americas and is one of only 8 international programs.  

Students choose specialized training in an area of concentration and engage in relevant community-based experiences in public health practice. They have opportunities to interact with centers in research, knowledge translation and public health outreach.  Our program hosts diverse international students over the world, with a variety of previous degrees.  Our graduates come from the program to work in leading public health, health care and other organizations in diverse settings.

The program train students  on the traditional public health core knowledge areas, (biostatistics, epidemiology, social and behavioral sciences, health services administration and environmental health sciences), while ensuring the cross-cutting​ and emerging public health areas including: Evidence-based Approaches, Public Health & Health Care Systems, Planning & Management to Promote Health, Policy in Public Health, Leadership, Communication, Inter-professional Practice (with Medicine and Nursing) and Systems Thinking. Courses address issues pertaining to public health in conflict and humanitarian crises and for interested students, there are opportunities to pursue a certificate within the MPH on these themes.​​​​
