Westminster's Master of Public Health Program

About the program

Westminster's Master of Public Health (MPH) program prepares students for a variety of careers in public health through rigorous course work, research opportunities, and real world practicum experiences. Students graduate from the program with a solid knowledge base in both theory and practice. 

The MPH program is taught in a worker friendly format - core courses are offered every-other week on Fridays and Saturdays. Elective courses are typically offered in the evenings. 

The MPH degree is recognized internationally for the public health professional.


Why Westminster?

A personalized education - Our small class sizes allow our experienced faculty to offer mentorship in and outside of the classroom. We strive to understand your career goals and to tailor your education to meet those goals. Our faculty are well-rounded in both research and practice and will help you connect with meaningful research and practice experiences.

A schedule that works for you - Our worker friendly schedule offers all required courses every other weekend (Friday/Saturday) and elective courses in the evenings. The MPH generally takes two years to complete.

Career placement - Westminster MPH students have a high success rate in job placement. We believe this is due in part to the high caliber of students we attract as well as the faculty mentorship and professional networking opportunities provided at Westminster.
