Academic 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.

The MPH in Chronic Disease Prevention & Control curriculum consists of 45 semester credit hours and is a non-thesis professional degree program. The program accommodates both traditional and non-traditional students yet ensures graduates attain public health competencies identified by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH), and competencies specific to our concentration (UTC MPH Competencies).

Our core MPH classes are designed as in-person, face-to-face meetings to enhance interactions and sharing of experiences. Students will have the option to progress through the program as a two-year cohort or as a part-time student over the course of three to four years. Classes are planned for the late afternoon and early evenings.

Our program strives 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. 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.
