Career Paths

An MPH degree equips you with the skills and knowledge needed for many post-graduation paths.

Some of our students choose to further their education with another graduate degree. Some graduates complete the MPH while they prepare for things like medical school or physician assistant school.

While some students choose to pursue education after graduating, others look to the job market. Some of our students, especially those completing an online MPH, are already employed and working in a health-related field while they complete the degree. These students are often looking to add a public health outlook to their current jobs. Still others use the MPH degree as an opportunity to change career paths or look for new opportunities.

Our students have gone on to do many things. Here are some examples:
