- Biostatistics – Collection, storage, retrieval, analysis and interpretation of health data; design and analysis of health-related surveys and experiments; and concepts and practice of statistical data analysis.
- Epidemiology – Distributions and determinants of disease, disabilities and death in human and animal populations; the characteristics and dynamics of populations; the natural history of disease; and the biologic basis of health.
- Environmental Health Sciences – Environmental factors, including biological, physical and chemical factors that affect the health of a community.
- Health Services Administration – Development, organization, administration, management, evaluation and policy analysis of health programs.
- Social and Behavioural Sciences – Concepts and methods of social and behavioural sciences relevant to the identification and the solution of public health problems.
The MPH is a professional course-based degree with a practicum. It is an interdisciplinary program intended to prepare individuals for professional practice and leadership in public health.
The program is designed for completion in two academic years of full-time study. Students may also choose to study part-time over a maximum of five years.
