Promote positive change and transform the health and well-being of your community through Creighton University’s online Master of Public Health (MPH). 


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.

One of the final requirements of the program, the practice experience, is also designed to be flexible. You’ll work with a practicum coordinator to determine the focus of your practice experience based on your goals and interests, then complete the practicum by working with a public health professional in your area. At the end, you’ll use your experiences to complete your capstone project.
