MPH Program

The MPH program welcomes you!

The UF Master of Public Health program is a 48-credit program with six concentration options to specialize in. Each contains core courses that all MPH students take, concentration-specific courses, and elective courses you can pick based on your interests. Our students gain real-world experience through our Applied Practice Experience course, by working with organizations in their individual communities to tackle current public health problems. At the end of their program, each student goes through our Integrated Learning Experience to build on everything they’ve learned.

The University of Florida is #6 in Top Public Schools. As a student in our program, you’ll get benefits like:

  • One-on-one advising from a faculty mentor
  • The chance to work with and learn from award-winning instructors
  • The freedom to pick elective courses that relate to exactly what you’re interested in
  • The flexibility to take courses from anywhere in the world through our online program
  • The opportunity to engage with your community through an internship experience, volunteer opportunities and final project

Isis Escandon Lamphier

“I chose to do an MPH because I am passionate about infection control and preventing hospital-acquired infections in patients in order to provide them with the care they need without any additional complications. I knew that the MPH program at UF would most prepare me for this field. The MPH program at UF has a diverse selection of courses for students to enroll in and truly introduces and submersed students in the field of public health.”
