About

The Master of Public Health (MPH) is awarded by the Graduate College. It is a nonthesis degree. The University of Iowa also offers Combined Degree Programs in Public Health.

Overview

The Master of Public Health (M.P.H.), offered by The University of Iowa, is recognized as the primary professional degree in public health. The objective of Iowa's M.P.H. program is to provide education and practical training in public health to students who will be leaders in their respective communities. The program is appropriate for individuals who already have professional experience and/or training in public health as well as for those whose expertise lies outside of public health.

Students may earn the Master of Public Health (M.P.H.) as a single degree, or they may pursue one of several combined degree programs. The College of Public Health offers combined M.P.H./professional degree programs with the Carver College of Medicine and the Colleges of Law and Pharmacy. It also offers two programs in collaboration with the College of Veterinary Medicine at Iowa State University. See "M.P.H./D.V.M.
