Now available online and on-campus, St. George’s University’s Master of Public Health (MPH) attracts students and faculty from around the world who are committed to improving global communities by disseminating public health knowledge through education, service, and research.
SGU’s MPH graduate degree produces leading public health practitioners and researchers for the Caribbean and for the rest of the world. The MPH program was accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) in 2010 and was awarded an additional 7-year accreditation by CEPH in 2015.
In addition to the core curriculum and program-required courses, freestanding MPH degree-seeking students are required to pursue a degree specialization in one of four tracks.
The epidemiology track focuses on population patterns and causes of diseases and health problems. Students will learn to characterize the patterns and causes of disease and learn to develop approaches to prevent and control their spread. Track-required courses address research methods, quantitative reasoning, and investigation methods for addressing topics of contemporary public health importance.
Environmental and Occupational Health track
The environmental and occupational health track is designed to help students gain insights into environmental factors that can affect human health, including in-depth analysis of sustainable approaches to eliminate and/or minimize any adverse impacts of these interactions. Track-required courses provide students with the background to address topics in occupational health, industrial hygiene, waste and water management, and air pollution control.
Health Policy and Administration track
The health policy and administration track links management and finance skills with public health and policy development to provide students with the skills to address a wide variety of public health challenges and to help shape the future of health policy and management. Students following this specialization will gain an understanding of the delivery of health care services and the broader social, cultural, and economic factors that influence health outcomes and health care delivery systems.
The Global Health Track in the MPH program at SGU will prepare students for analytical, practical and strategic decision-making within the global health environment. The main goal is to equip graduates with knowledge and skills to manage, lead and/or contribute to governmental and non-governmental organizations to achieve health-related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Emphasizing a multi-disciplinary, systems thinking approach, the curriculum includes projects that highlight innovative, equitable, and cost-effective solutions for solving complex and diverse challenges in disease prevention and control. Students will have access to diverse faculty, academic resources, networking opportunities, and support as they complete coursework towards developing specific foundational knowledge and skills in global health. This track is offered asynchronously, making it the most flexible online track.
