Accredited by CEPH. The purpose of the Master of Public Health (MPH) degree is to provide students with mastery of theory, knowledge and skills in areas of public and community health. The program prepares students with a broad foundation in all five core areas of public health: health behavior and education, health services administration, epidemiology, biostatistics and environmental health sciences. The program emphasis in Community Health Education also exposes students to specialized training in health promotion and education methods, health communication, program planning and evaluation and program management. All students have an opportunity to apply learned skills in practice during a culminating capstone course and a supervised practicum (internship) experience in the community. Students also have the opportunity to develop other areas of professional interest through electives, student organizations and faculty research.
Due to the consolidation of Armstrong State University and Georgia Southern University, the Master of Public Health (Generalist Concentration) will be moving from the College of Health Professions to the Jiann‑Ping Hsu College of Public Health (JPHCOPH) effective January 1, 2018.
With this change, Master of Public Health (Generalist Concentration) applicants should apply through the Schools of Public Health Application Service (SOPHAS). The MPH Admissions requirements and JPHCOPH Applications Deadlines can be found at http://jphcoph.georgiasouthern.edu/degrees/mph/admissions/.
