General Questions about MPH


  • Q: What is the advantage of an MPH degree over other health focused Master's Programs?

    The MPH degree is a graduate degree that best prepares students for a career in Public Health. This professional degree emphasizes public health practice, but also allows flexibility for those interested in public health research. An MPH degree requires a practicum or a thesis, allowing the program to be tailored for individuals interested in practice and those interested in research. For those interested in further public health studies, MPH graduates are competitive applicants for Ph.D. programs.

  • Q: How difficult is it to find a job after completing an MPH degree?

    Historically, there are many job opportunities for well-trained MPH students. The Council on Education in Public Health (CEPH) expects that at least 80% of MPH graduates from accredited programs will obtain a job in a health-related field or go on to further educational training within a year of graduation. The need for public health professionals in both urban and rural areas in Oklahoma and throughout America remains high. By 2020, the Association of Schools of Public Health estimates that the country will need an additional 250,000 public health workers.
