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.

Students can choose an interdisciplinary program or a concentration in health policy and management.


We’re looking for mid-career professionals from a wide range of backgrounds interested in improving public health. We’re seeking dynamic people ready to address today’s complex health problems ranging from access to care, food insecurity, policy change, maternal health and beyond.


Whether you want to advance where you currently are, or pivot to a new career, you’ll gain public health skills and knowledge to create your own path. Our students make change and break grounds in pharma-biotech, leading healthcare systems (such as Kaiser Permanente), non-profits, health departments and government agencies. Our graduates bring public health to the forefront in a variety of areas such as education, veterinary medicine, law and sports.


Applicants to this program must complete the graduate division application. We admit students three times a year: fall, spring and summer. Visit our online programs admissions page for application dates and deadlines.
