Program Details

A flexible degree that will fit your needs

The UBC Master of Public Health degree integrates learning in epidemiology; biostatistics; the social, biological and environmental determinants of health; population health; global health; disease prevention and health systems management with skill-based learning in a practicum setting.

The program is available in two formats to fit the needs of students from various backgrounds. There is the traditional, classroom-based curriculum where students come to campus every week for courses. We also have a Distributed Learning (DL) format where students come to campus four days a month for three times in the term.

The program will normally be completed in two years (three academic terms and one term devoted to a practicum) and students must complete at least 42 credits to graduate. We are also affiliated with a large number of organizations:
