The on-campus MPH program is a two-year, 48-credit program. The first four semesters usually involve traditional coursework, while the last semester is devoted to an Applied Practice Experience (APE) and culminating capstone and special project.
The online MPH program includes all of the elements of the campus-based program in a convenient online learning platform, allowing students to complete the entire program without ever visiting campus. The online program follows the same curriculum as the traditional campus program, but students select the rate at which they take classes. Online students also complete an Applied Practice Experience (APE) and culminating capstone and special project.
Combination MPH programs with programs in the colleges of Law, Medicine, Pharmacy and Veterinary Medicine are available, as well as with PhD programs in Clinical and Health Psychology, Health Services Research and Rehabilitation Science. Combination degrees may also be developed on an individual basis for other PhD and master’s programs at the University of Florida.
A combination degree option is available for current University of Florida undergraduate students. Qualified seniors may apply to the combination bachelor’s/MPH program, which allows completion of 15 MPH credits during the senior year.
