Overview

Creighton’s Master of Public Health program is designed to be flexible. All coursework in the program is completed online and there are no on-campus residencies required. Students who take one course per eight-week term should finish the program in about two and a half years.

Your passions and career goals will help shape your path. Customize your master’s program by choosing from concentrations in Healthcare Management or Health Policy and Ethics. Better yet: courses for the concentration in Healthcare Management count toward a Graduate Certificate in Healthcare Management and courses for the concentration in Health Policy and Ethics count toward a Graduate Certificate in Health Care Ethics. Earning a graduate certificate in addition to your master’s degree can be as easy as completing the MPH program.
