The Master of Public Health program prepares you to close the gap between the concepts of public health and the realities of actual practice to improve health and well-being.

Why a Master’s Degree in Public Health?

The MPH is a management and administrative degree that helps move people beyond entry level work in public health to more supervisory or managerial roles. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (2015) states that the number of health managerial positions is growing at a 17% rate from 2014 to 2024. With this exceptional growth in the field, more public health professionals are required to help develop, implement and evaluate public health interventions and processes to build a healthier nation.

Working on a class project, I saw problems associated with homeless youth and young adults in Minnesota. I was moved and motivated to act, which led to the [creation of] Lifeconnect Incorporated.
