Overview

To prepare to become leaders in the field, MPH students build expertise in core public health concepts and customize their learning with skill development in areas like precision nutrition, health communications, data analysis, environmental epidemiology, and more.

The online Master of Public Health from Coursera in partnership with University of Michigan offers true flexibility, in contrast with other top online MPH programs that require residential study. Online students are welcome to visit and study on campus, but this is never required by the program.

The comprehensive MPH curriculum equips students to tackle complex health challenges such as chronic and infectious diseases, obesity and food insecurity, health care quality and costs, climate change and environmental health determinants, and the health impact of socioeconomic inequalities. Each student gains real-world experience through applied practice experiences with professionals in the public health sector.

Students develop skills in data collection and analysis, intervention strategy, and communication methods, preparing them to succeed in a wide variety of roles and organizations. Graduates of Michigan Public Health are found in key positions as leaders at non-profit organizations, hospitals, insurance companies, universities, pharmaceutical and biotech companies, and local and national government organizations.
