Master in Public Health


The nation's transition to a new healthcare delivery model means that professionals with expertise in prevention and community-based research will be critical to ensuring adequate healthcare for all and for improving the health of the nation. The MPH degrees in Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Health Behavior and Health Promotion will prepare the next generation of public health professionals.

The program’s vision is aligned with the Department of Public Health Sciences’ vision of cultivating a healthier tomorrow through leadership in Public Health Sciences and the Medical University of South Carolina’s Imagine MUSC 2020 Strategic Plan, with our focus on: Commitment to Patients and Families First, Build Healthy Communities, Embrace Diversity and Inclusion, Advance new Knowledge and Scientific Discoveries, Foster Innovative Education and Learning.

The program’s mission is to advance knowledge, skill, and scholarship in public health, population health, and data science through research, education, and service in synergistic and innovative programs.

The program’s goal is to train health professionals to enable positive health outcomes and enhance health equity in South Carolina, the Southeast region, the nation, and the globe.

The program will help students develop expertise and experience on how to evaluate the status of the health of diverse populations and to develop sound plans and strategies to implement health initiatives to improve population health.
