Traditional Master of Public Health

The Julia Jones Matthews School of Population and Public Health is proud to offer a Traditional Master of Public Health (MPH) degree program. Training emphasizes the knowledge and skills of core public health fields and the integration and application of those fields to public health practice. This program is available on the Abilene and Lubbock campuses.

Two concentrations are available: Generalist and Health Promotion and Communication. Both concentrations will provide students with the knowledge, skills and values needed to succeed in careers that emphasize public health.

  • The MPH - Health Promotion and Communication is appropriate for students who want to develop and evaluate public health interventions and communication plans. The concentration covers all of the public health competencies for the MPH, but provides additional focus on the behavioral and communication sciences, development of culturally appropriate and theory-based interventions, and evaluation of the effectiveness of those programs. 
  • The MPH - Generalist program will prepare health professionals to practice skillful and evidence-based preventive public health, conduct and communicate research that informs the diverse fields within public health, and provide interdisciplinary expertise in the service of academic, professional and community-based public health organizations. 
  • Both MPH degree plans include a core set of requirements that focus on the five (5) Core Disciplines in Public Health: Biostatistics; Environmental Health; Epidemiology; Health Policy Management; and Social and Behavioral Sciences.
  • The application process is the same for both the Generalist and Health Promotion and Communication tracks. You will indicate your concentration preference on our supplemental application.
