Master of Public Health
Public health professionals serve local, national and international communities. They are the leaders who will meet the many exciting challenges in protecting the public’s health today and in the future. To meet these challenges, students complete coursework to attain depth and breadth of expertise in the five core areas of public health knowledge: Biostatistics, Epidemiology, Environmental Health, Health Services Administration, and Social and Behavioral Sciences.
Why our program?
The MPH is the most widely recognized professional credential for leadership in public health. CBU’s MPH program supports interdisciplinary communication, promotes a broad intellectual framework for problem solving and fosters the development of professional public health values.
Students will study the challenges that public health professionals confront such as improving access to health care, controlling infectious disease, reducing environmental hazards, violence, substance abuse and injury.
Those interested in research careers will be prepared to address community-relevant public health questions.
Students will choose one of two concentrations to complement their core foundation in Public Health:
- Health Education and Promotion
- Health Policy and Administration
- Accreditation Information
The Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) accredits schools and program of public health in the United States. An application for accreditation was accepted by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) in October 2015. CEPH has begun their review of California Baptist University's Master of Public Health (MPH) program and will visit in March 2018. An essential component of the process is the completion of a self-study. The self-study consists of a comprehensive description and assessment of the context, organization, governance and resources for the program, the curricula and learning outcomes for the degree and concentrations offered, the collective research and service activities within the program and the people within the program- faculty, students and staff. Guidelines and assessment criteria for conducting the self-study have been established by CEPH and may be found at the following link: https://ceph.org/assets/2016.Criteria.pdf.
A preliminary self-study report was submitted to the Council on Education for Public Health on October 2, 2017. The preliminary self-study is available for review at: 2017 Self-Study CBU MPH Program.
