The curriculum for Ohio University’s online Master of Public Health includes courses focused on the assessment, design, implementation and evaluation of health interventions in a community setting. Coursework culminates with an MPH capstone project in which you apply what you’ve learned to a community setting outside of the virtual classroom.

The 42-credit program consists of 14 three-credit courses that are each seven weeks long. You can earn your degree in as few as two years.
