What is Public Health at WVU like?
A Master of Public Health (MPH) degree is a multidisciplinary professional degree focused on the application of science, research and theoretical knowledge toward the prevention of disease.
The WVU MPH program prepares students for promising careers providing evidence-based solutions to complex health issues. Graduates leave our program with the skills necessary to work in a variety of public health settings such as health departments, clinics, and federal agencies.
The MPH program at WVU is organized around three core disciplines of public health:
- Applied Epidemiology and Biostatistics
- Public Health Practice and Leadership
- Social and Behavioral Sciences
The program requires a variety of courses and experiences across these disciplines. MPH core courses provide students with an understanding of the breadth of public health, and departmental courses in each major allow students to apply various principles to specific disciplines.
Each graduate program sets their own term of admission and application deadline. Applicants can only apply for admission for the term displayed below. Any questions regarding the application deadline should be directed to the graduate program representative.
