Master of Public Health (MPH)

Welcome to the Master of Public Health

The Master of Public Health degree at the School of Population and Public Health is for those who wish to become the public health leaders of the future.

The program prepares students to undertake research, develop public health policy, evaluate health plans and preparedness, and provide leadership in public health both in Canada and beyond.

The University of British Columbia is known for academic excellence, innovative research and faculty who are leaders in their fields. The MPH program is offered in two formats, allowing flexibility for working professionals and students with families. The program provides students with a solid grounding in epidemiological methods, as well as hands-on experience through a 12 week practicum.

Our graduates have gone on to work for organizations such as federal and provincial government, health authorities, research institutes, non-profit organizations and in academia, in a variety of roles, including in policy development and planning, as research coordinators and analysts, community health nurses, and field epidemiologists.
