Prospective Students

Become tomorrow’s public health leader

The Master of Public Health program targets professionals who have been working in the field of public health, many of whom will be in leadership roles, who wish to extend their knowledge in public health methods and applications.

We also encourage applications from students who have recently completed a bachelor degree in related content areas including the health sciences (such as medicine, nursing, physiotherapy, nutrition sciences, pharmacy, midwifery, kinesiology), science (such as microbiology, biology, environmental sciences, statistics), arts (such as sociology, psychology, anthropology) applied sciences, (such as engineering) or business.

If you would like to have the skills needed to tackle global health issues, implement disease prevention strategies, evaluate health promotion programs and equity of accessibility to healthcare, conduct innovative research into the health of communities, and develop the policies required to ensure a healthy population, then the Master of Public Health degree at UBC is the program for you.

We offer our students a solid grounding in epidemiological methodology and quantitative analysis, a rigorous curriculum with a wide range of public health courses, faculty who are leaders in their field, and hands-on experience through the 12 week practicum, while classes take place at the beautiful UBC Vancouver campus, surrounded by mountains and the sea.
