With specializations in Health Management & Policy, Indigenous Health and Population Health Research & Analytics, we prepare culturally-competent public health professionals with the motivation, skills, and knowledge to improve population health in the diverse communities of the Northern Plains and beyond.
Why Study Public Health at University of North Dakota?
The Master of Public Health (M.P.H.) program at UND emphasizes, and is enriched by, the diversity and change within the Northern Plains. It covers all required areas for accredited public health programs, including evidence-based approaches to public health, public health and health care systems, planning and management to promote health, policy, leadership, communication, interprofessional practice and systems thinking.
Three specializations help you develop the necessary critical thinking, problem solving and communication skills to excel in this field:
- Indigenous Health provides you with a critical understanding of determinants and solutions to health disparities. UND's specialization is the only 100% online Indigenous Health program in the U.S.
- Population Health Research and Analytics prepares you to produce convincing and scientifically sound information about population health, evaluate the effectiveness of interventions and provide the basis for improving health policies and programs. This specialization is offered in a hybrid format (online/on campus).
- Health Management & Policy gives you the skills needed to manage health delivery systems effectively and efficiently, analyze health policies and communicate to affect change in health policy and management. This specialization is offered 100% online.
