Do you feel that the current health system is ill-equipped to solve complex community health problems and does not sufficiently address them? Well, you can play an integral role in changing that.
Bastyr University’s Master of Public Health (MPH) program equips you with the skills and knowledge to address all factors – biological, social and environmental – necessary to help solve these community health problems. Through experienced faculty mentorship, as well as practicum and capstone projects with outstanding community partners, you’ll be well prepared to work in a variety of public health settings that support social and health justice.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment opportunities in public health are projected to grow significantly over the next eight years.
