Master of Public Health Degree

In Fall 2012, the Mailman School of Public Health introduced a breakthrough MPH curriculum that set a new standard for public health education. The result of an intensive schoolwide effort and investment involving more than 150 members of the faculty, as well as students, alumni, and employers, the new curriculum provides the broad systemic understanding, critical thinking skills, and leadership training needed to tackle today’s complex public health challenges.

Work Commitments

During the first semester of the Columbia MPH and the Accelerated MPH, while engaging in the integrated core, students are strongly advised against extra-curricular work commitments. In second, third, and fourth semesters of the program, schedules are more flexible and students may engage in some part-time work.
