The Public Health program of The University of North Carolina at Charlotte seeks to fulfill the Department of Public Health Sciences’ vision: “Healthy communities partnered with responsive population health systems.” To support the department’s mission, “Advancing health equity and well-being in an urbanizing world,” the MPH program develops leaders in evidence-based practice who advance the public’s health. The program values collaboration, community engagement, diversity, innovation, professionalism, health equity, and social justice in its pursuit of attaining the highest possible standards of health and well-being.
Areas of Study
Students develop specialized skills in one of four concentrations:
- Community Health Practice (CHPR)
- Epidemiology (EPID)
- Physical Activity and Nutrition (PANU)
- Population Health Analytics (PHAN)
The program prepares students to provide leadership in a variety of settings, including health-related agencies and organizations, hospitals, local and state public health departments, academic research centers and institutes, corporate disease management and wellness programs, non-profit agencies, and healthcare businesses and industries.
The MPH program achieves its mission through a set of complementary and reinforcing instructional, practice, service, and diversity goals that reflect the program’s values and provide a framework for defining, assessing, and evaluating both students and the curriculum.
- Goal 1 (instructional): We develop leaders to promote health equity
- Goal 2 (research): We engage in scholarship to strengthen the public health evidence base
- Goal 3 (service): We collaborate with partners and stakeholders to advance population well-being
