With Benedictine University's CEPH-accredited Master in Public Health (M.P.H.) degree online, you can potentially advance your career and expand your service in public health to help people worldwide live more healthy lives.


In Benedictine University's our experiential program in Public Health, you work with distinguished, practice-based faculty and gain real experience in research, analysis, policy, and management through hands-on coursework and an internship.

To sharpen your skill set further, you also have the option to earn one of three career-focused graduate certificates in an area of public health along with your M.P.H., in the same amount of time it takes to earn your degree.

Why Choose The Master of Public Health?

Your decision to return to school is a serious undertaking. In our own commitment to service, we do everything we can to remove barriers to earning a quality education.

The M.P.H. program is:

  • Flexible. This program gives you the option to learn either 100% online or on campus. As an online student, you can study whenever and wherever works best for you while you continue to work full-time. And it's possible to complete your internship where you work now.
  • Attainable. You can earn your M.P.H. in less than two years or take up to 6 years to complete the degree. Request a GRE waiver if you have an advanced degree or a minimum GPA of 2.75 in your undergrad degree.
  • Supportive. You have a full-time academic advisor, financial aid advisors, virtual career services, and around-the-clock access to the help desk. You can even chat with an on-campus librarian to help you conduct research.
  • Experiential. You graduate with hands-on experience in research, policy, technologies, management and more.
  • Career-Focused. Earn one of three career-based graduate certificates in the same time it takes you to earn the degree, or take a more broad-based approach to learning.
  • Respected. You're joining an established and distinguished public health graduate program that's one of the largest of its kind in Illinois.
  • Rooted in Excellence. Our CEPH accreditation guarantees we teach you how to achieve excellence in practice, research and service through collaboration with organization and community partners.
