Creighton University has a long history of providing highly respected health science degree programs across a variety of fields. Offered through Creighton’s esteemed Center for Health Policy and Ethics (CHPE), the online Master of Public Health is an interdisciplinary degree that focuses on the foundations of contemporary public health with courses in community-based participatory research, public health ethics and public health systems management.
This MPH is a fully online program (no residency requirement), and is built on a dynamic core curriculum and offers two concentrations to choose from through which students can customize their degree to match their individual interests and career goals including:
Health Policy and Ethics: From access to health care to health-related law and health care reform, this concentration explores public health at a legislative, institutional and ethical level. Graduates will understand how health and well-being can be influenced by government and private action and how ethical systems can be created through policies and laws that impact health care and public health.
