Why Study Public Health at UND?
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 biostatistics, epidemiology, social and behavioral sciences, and health management and policy.
Two specializations help you develop the necessary critical thinking, problem solving and communication skills to excel in this field:
- Population Health 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.
- 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.
