Lead Change in Public Health

If you’re looking to make an impact and work directly with health care issues that affect communities, earning joint master’s degrees in public administration and public health is a great option. Students in the program will gain skills necessary to address critical public health and health policy issues. Learn how to manage people, projects and budgets in a wide variety of organizations, including nonprofits, government agencies and private businesses. Under this joint degree program, a student may complete two separate degrees, the Master of Public Administration and the Master of Public Health, in a shorter period of time than would be required if the degrees were taken consecutively.
