Overview

The Behavioral and Community Health program from University of Maryland is in direct alignment with the traditional in-person MPH in Behavioral and Community Health offered on the College Park campus and follows the same guidelines, course structure, and admissions policies.  However, the online MPH program offers more flexibility for students learning and increased opportunity to tailor learning to different needs. 

The online MPH in BCH synthesizes knowledge, social aspects, and cultures of populations to determine current and future health status. The program emphasizes the idea that health status is the interplay of individual and social, political and economic structures of a society. Here, factors related to human behaviors, biological, and medical/health systems are considered important in understanding how larger societal forces shape individual’s health and wellbeing
