Online MPH in Epidemiology

Online Master of Public Health in Epidemiology

Solve the greatest health challenges of our time by obtaining a high-quality online

Master of Public Health in epidemiology from UTHealth Houston School of Public Health.

The MPH in Epidemiology is designed to provide a solid foundation including core knowledge and skills in epidemiology, as well as a breadth of achievement in the remaining four core disciplines (i.e., health promotion, biostatistics, environmental health, management and policy) of public health. This program aims to prepare students to put epidemiologic concepts and methods into public health practice, conduct research, and interpret evidence relevant to public health.

The online MPH in Epidemiology is designed with our students in mind—to be flexible for full-time and part-time students throughout Texas and the United States. 100% of the coursework required to complete the online MPH in Epidemiology is available asynchronously, but students have the option to take synchronous and in-person courses as their preferences and schedules allow.

Synchronous online courses meet at set days and times each week, where students join the instructor live via an interactive virtual format or can attend these classes in-person, in the assigned classroom, with the faculty instructor present. Asynchronous online courses do not require live instruction but incorporate valuable faculty and peer interaction asynchronously for maximum flexibility. All classes have clear expectations detailed in the course syllabi, including class schedules, assessments, and deadlines.
