Online Master of Public Health Program (MPH)

Berkeley Public Health Online is a 27-month program designed for working people interested in improving their knowledge and practice in public health. We provide a top-notch, flexible, practice based graduate education to professionals around the globe.


There are six required courses for all students earning an MPH degree. These courses, taken primarily during the first year of the program, solidify a foundation in the concepts and competencies relevant to addressing determinants of health, using both qualitative and data-driven approaches. Students complete the remaining units according to their own professional goals and interests.

Program Options

Students can design an interdisciplinary program by combining courses in the following study areas:

  • Health Care Management
  • Health Policy and Economics
  • Global Health
  • Epidemiology, Infectious Disease, and Regulatory Science
  • Community Health Sciences
  • Spatial Data Science for Public Health

Or, students can choose to complete a full concentration in health policy and management or epidemiology and biostatistics.
