The King Graduate School’s Masters in Public Health program is designed to prepare students for careers in government agencies, academia, healthcare institutions, public health interest groups, and non-profit organizations upon graduation. Public health is a diverse field that attracts professionals from various educational backgrounds who work to address complex health issues such as sexually transmitted infections, chronic diseases, environmental hazards, and substance abuse; and serve communities locally and globally to improve peoples’ health and prolong lives. Public health professionals need to collaborate with clinicians, heath care agencies, and community members to identify resources that help mitigate these health issues and prevent future health problems.
The MPH program offers convenient scheduling and students have the option to take courses on campus, online, or both. If students choose to take classes on campus, they can study in New Rochelle, the Bronx, or Queens. Students are also able to tailor their degree by specializing in one of two concentrations:
- Community Health
- Health Administration and Leadership
These concentrations are driven by a curriculum that provides the extensive knowledge and skills needed to conduct essential public health services. The first semesters will involve traditional public health coursework, while the last semesters will be devoted to a practice-based internship and a thesis paper based on an outcome-oriented project.
