Curriculum

The Case MPH Program has a two-year curriculum requiring 42 credit hours. Eighteen credits are accumulated in six core required courses, representing the fundamental domains of public health: biostatistics, epidemiology, environmental health sciences, health services administration, public health history and social and behavioral sciences. Students receive nine credits for three courses in the major of their choice, three credits for an elective course, and nine credits for the “Capstone Experience,” a public health field practicum encompassing one semester of the MPH program. Three more credits are earned through the MPH seminar program, a two-semester sequence including journal club activities. Previous experience or education pertaining to public health may increase the student’s flexibility in course selection. Students may also enroll part-time and take courses over a three to five year period.
