About

UNC-Chapel Hill's Master of Public Health in Public Health Leadership program offers an interdisciplinary practice-based curriculum that addresses core workforce competencies in public health while placing special emphasis on leadership. 

Overview

The program will give you a population-based perspective derived from the core public health functions of assessment, assurance, and policy development. You will choose from one of four curriculum focus areas: public health practice; public health program development; public health nursing (for BSNs only); and field epidemiology.

The programme

The courses in the online Public Health Leadership program are the same courses offered by the on-campus program, but you take your courses entirely online. The distance program replicates the classroom experience by using Web-based courses consisting of lectures, discussion forums, group and individual assignments, papers, and exams. Regular UNC-Chapel Hill faculty design and teach your online courses, with some adjunct faculty approved by the program. 

You will stay in contact with your instructors, participate in classroom activities, and complete all the same work as students studying on campus, but you will do it from your computer at home, with the exception of two, four-day, on-campus sessions, typically held in August and May of the first year. Your online courses are enhanced by asynchronous and synchronous learning applications, and by streaming audio and video.
