Master of Public Health

You can get your Master of Public Health (MPH) degree at any of our three collaborating institutions. Each campus offers areas of study that leverage the unique strengths of that university. All three of our campuses are home to world-class experts, opportunities to get hands-on with what matters to you, and the chance to get out there and take advantage of everything Colorado has to offer. Inside and outside of the classroom, you can choose your adventure at the Colorado School of Public Health.

The 42-45 credit hour MPH program is designed to be completed in two years and must be finished within five years. As part of your degree, you’ll complete a practicum and capstone project, so you’ll graduate with skills you learned by doing, not just sitting in a classroom.
