Master of Public Health (M.P.H.)
The M.P.H. program prepares professionals for leadership positions in public health and health-related agencies. Students may specialize in health promotion or health services management. A generalist focus is also available for qualified health care and certified health educator professionals who do not wish to specialize.
Some clinical affiliates (or internship sites) require that students submit to (and pay for) a flu shot, TB immunizations and drug testing, as well as undergo (and pay for) a criminal background check prior to beginning the practicum. The School of Nursing and Health Studies supports this requirement where applicable as a condition of the legal affiliation agreements between the School or its programs and the affiliate sites. Approximate costs for each of the above are listed below.
Influenza Immunization: $23.00 - $25.00 (range)
Drug Test: $33.00 - $75.00 (range)
Criminal Background Check: $65.00 - $80.00 (average fee, can vary)
Tuberculosis Test: $10.00 (Student Health Services)
