Course Description

Southwest Ohio’s First M.P.H. Program

The Wright State University Master of Public Health (M.P.H.) degree program incorporates a community-based, interdisciplinary educational program in public health using a combination of colleges and schools. Beginning Fall 2016, the program will offer two concentrations: Health Promotion & Education (HPE) and Population Health (PH).

Course detail

Students matriculating in the HPE concentration will develop advanced skills in community needs assessment, program planning, program implementation, program evaluation and health promotion advocacy. In addition, students will gain in-depth knowledge in the determinants of health behavior, theories of social and behavioral change, the interdisciplinary nature of common health issues and current health promotion and behavioral interventions. Coursework aligns to the seven areas of responsibilities of the health education specialists (2015) and graduates are eligible to sit for the Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES) exam.

Students in the PH concentration will have fewer course requirements allowing them the flexibility to choose public health courses based upon their interests and professsional goals. The PH concentration offers programs of study to assist students who want to explore a variety of public health topic areas, focus on advanced methods or ultimately work as public health practitioners.

Graduates in either concentration have the opportunity to sit for the Certified Public Health (CPH) exam offered by the National Board of Pubilc Health Examiners. The exam covers five core areas of knowledge offered in CEPH-accredited schools and programs as well as cross-cutting areas relevant to contemporary health.

Students wanting to demonstrate their proficiency in the emergency preparedness, global health or public health management can do so by applying to one of the Department of Community Health’s certificate programs. In the majority of cases, courses taken as part of these certificate programs will count towards the credits needed for the M.P.H. degree.

Education that Fits with Your Career and Family Commitments

As Southwest Ohio’s first M.P.H. program, the program is responsive to the educational needs of working public health and other professionals who serve a population of nearly three million residents. Its diverse student body includes in-career professionals, medical students, recent college graduates and individuals making a career change.

Students must complete a minimum of 42 semester hours for completion. While the core curriculum is grounded in traditional classroom instruction, web-based learning enhances the program. Courses are offered in the evenings Monday through Thursday. The program can be completed in two years by taking a full-time graduate course load each semester.

All students complete a field placement and applied project or problem paper (culminating experience). Students present their culminating experience at a poster symposium. Their manuscripts and posters are also published electronically through the university’s open-access online repository (CORE Scholar).

The WSU M.P.H. program is operated in partnership with 28 health districts throughout Southwest Ohio and seven academic divisions within Wright State University. The university and faculty are committed to working with key stakeholders and organizations in the community.

Tuition and Fees
