New Public Health Positions Expected to Increase by 2022

Employment opportunities for graduates with master’s degrees in public health are diverse, challenging and rewarding. By 2022 new MPH careers are expected to increase to approximately 109,000. This is an ideal program for both professionals and students.

  • Professionals: advance your career, learn to address new advancements in public health and healthcare
  • Students: enter the clinical space with the tools needed to care for individuals while addressing social determinants of health 

Dual Degree Programs

Public health education often crosses academic boundaries to provide a robust, multi-disciplined graduate experience. The Julia Jones Matthews Department of Public Health currently offers three dual degree programs which afford students the opportunity to gain knowledge, skills, and perspectives in fields beyond public health.

Applicants seeking admission to dual-degree programs must apply separately to each program, and must meet the admissions requirements of both. Students considering dual-degree programs may apply to both schools at the same time and are strongly encouraged to apply as early as possible. Once both schools grant admission to the individual degree programs, the student will meet with an advisor to develop an individual path to integration.
