Promote positive change and transform the health and well-being of your community through Creighton University’s online Master of Public Health (MPH). Pursuing your graduate degree at Creighton means you’ll earn a public health education grounded in the Jesuit values that make up our mission.


The Master of Public Health program at Creighton University 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.

What you can do with an online MPH degree

Demand for Medical and Health Services Managers, Health Educators, Community Health Workers and Community and Social Service Specialists is expected to rise more than 12 percent in the next decade. Earning your master’s in public health can be the first step toward a rewarding career promoting healthy individuals, families and communities by solving public health issues.
