The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC) Master of Public Health (MPH) in Chronic Disease Prevention and Control is a two-year, interdisciplinary program offered through the College of Health, Education and Professional Studies. This unique program is dedicated to educating and training future public health professionals to be leaders and innovators committed to combating chronic diseases through an environment rich in learning, community engagement and service. 

Located in the heart of metropolitan Chattanooga, we are escalating efforts to address the growth of chronic diseases in pursuit of creating a healthier, more vibrant community. We are redefining ways to approach public health issues by working across systems to prevent and mitigate the impact of chronic diseases on our society. Whether in the classroom or in the community, we train professionals to promote healthy lifestyles to individuals in diverse communities locally, nationally and globally.

This is a critical time for public health. We seek compassionate, dedicated, aspiring leaders to fulfill this growing workforce. Are you ready to embark on a satisfying and impactful career in public health?

Mission

We seek to engage students in applied, integrated experiences that equip them to take an active role in providing public health leadership within the communities they serve. As a program, we strive to promote health equity and reduce health disparities through community-engaged experiences and collaborative, interdisciplinary approaches with the ultimate goal of preventing premature disability and death from chronic diseases. 

Vision

Equipping public health leaders to prevent chronic disease through the promotion of healthy lifestyles and healthy communities.

Program Overview

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), chronic diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer, are now responsible for the greatest proportion of deaths in the United States and globally. In addition to their effect on mortality, chronic diseases have an enormous impact on disability, quality of life, lost productivity and are a major contributor to health disparities. The economic costs of chronic diseases create an enormous burden on individuals, the communities they live in and our health systems.

The Master of Public Health (MPH) program in Chronic Disease Prevention and Control at the University of Tennessee Chattanooga trains public health practitioners and researchers to serve as leaders in public and private health agencies in the prevention and control of chronic diseases. The program draws upon the strengths of faculty within the College of Health, Education and Professional Studies, as well as leaders across campus including the University of Tennessee Medical College, Nursing, Physical Therapy, Learning and Leadership, Social Work, Business Management, Political Science and Public Service and Psychology. 

Our MPH program in Chronic Disease Prevention and Control integrates a biological, behavioral, and ecological perspective to understand how physical activity, proper nutrition and other health behaviors impact the development of chronic diseases at the community, national, and global level. Our program of study:

  • strategically aligns with the core functions in public health (assessment, policy development, and assurance)
  • provides exposure to conducting essential public health services in a variety of settings,
  • trains students to be innovators, advocates and leaders in addressing problems related to chronic disease,
  • engages students in collaboration with community partners at every step of their training.

A major focus of our MPH program is to connect students to a multitude of experiences working directly with community partners to apply classroom learning in real world settings. Our students are immersed in public health experiences in large health systems, community health centers, parks departments and local non-profit organizations to combat the growth of chronic diseases in urban and rural communities across southeastern Tennessee.

Our Curriculum

The UTC Master in Public Health is a rigorous, professional training program that is a purposeful mix of classroom-based learning and applied field experiences. Our goal is to provide training essential for working in public health and chronic disease prevention settings. Course material is continually reinforced and expanded upon in subsequent classes and applied in different public health settings.

Our core MPH classes are designed as in-person, face-to-face meetings to enhance interactions and sharing of experiences. Students will progress through the program as a cohort to ensure that they receive the highest level of academic and logistical support in graduating in a timely fashion. Students engage in a tight knit, learning community and develop bonds with other cohort members. These relationships serve as the foundation for professional networks that extend beyond the classroom and significantly enhance their future career development and professional advancement. Classes are scheduled in the evening to allow greater flexibility for working professionals. While core classes meet face-to-face, several elective courses are available online to allow for greater flexibility and freedom in designing a customized program of study.
