The Master of Public Health prepares graduate students to apply core principles of public health within a variety of community settings and to advance the public health profession. The MPH program seeks to fulfil the Department of Public Health Science's vision of healthy communities partnered with responsive population health systems. The mission is to develop leaders in evidence-based practice who advance the public's health. The program values collaboration, community engagement, diversity, innovation, professionalism, health equity, and social justice in its pursuit of attaining the highest possible standards of health and well-being.
Students develop specialized skills in one of 4 concentrations: Community Health Practice (CHPR); Epidemiology (EPID), Physical Activity and Nutrition (PANU) or Population Health Analytics (PHAN). The program prepares students to provide leadership in a variety of settings, including health-related agencies and organizations, hospitals, local and state public health departments, academic research centers and institutes, corporate disease management and wellness programs, non-profit agencies, and healthcare businesses and industries.
Please contact the MPH Program Director for more information (email@example.com). We are currently accepting applications for Spring 2021. To be considered for department funding and scholarships, Fall applicants should submit their application via the egrad system by January 15th, 2020. Applications submitted after January 15th will continue to be reviewed until the class is full.
Given the ongoing challenges for students to access physical and virtual standardized testing options, the MPH program at UNC Charlotte has elected to suspend the GRE requirement for 2021 applicants. International students whose native language is not English will still be asked to submit either TOEFL or IELTS scores as part of their application.*
