About Public Health
The College of Health Science and Public Health offers the only Master of Public Health (MPH) program in eastern Washington.
The EWU MPH program is a fully online program.
In line with the mission of Eastern Washington University, the Master of Public Health program prepares future public health leaders to manage, develop, and re-orient health services to combat health inequalities and promote access and inclusion. The courses focus on developing leadership skills in an engaged, practical, and applied manner across the full spectrum of population health domains.
This program is specifically aimed at entry-level and early Public Health career professionals. EWU’s MPH faculty aims to develop a public health orientation in students while at the same time equipping graduates with the skills, knowledge, and expertise to succeed in health care and allied systems. The MPH may also appeal to more established health practitioners seeking public health credentialing and/or those seeking particular training in public health to enhance their careers.
The MPH Program is fully online and part of Eastern Washington University’s College of Health Science & Public Health (CHSPH), located in Spokane. The MPH program is a semester-based program with a tailored curriculum that emphasizes leadership in the public health arena.
