Master of Public Health

Global Public Health - Applied Biostatistics


​The Master of Public Health concentration in Global Public Health and Applied Biostatistics provides students with a public health perspective of globalization and global health issues, programs and best practices; trains students to use public health methods to address global health challenges; and provides depth in the area of applied biostatistics, in which students learn to apply analytic methods and statistical reasoning to characterize, investigate, and address problems in public health and medicine.

As part of the MPH program, students are required to complete the core program curriculum including a practicum and captsone projects. Capstone projects should incorporate applied biostatistics and a global component.
