The Austin Peay State University Master of Public Health (MPH) degree is a 42-credit hour program designed to train students to protect and promote the health of communities and populations. Throughout the program, students will gain an in-depth understanding of how social determinants contribute to health inequities, and through experiential learning opportunities, students will investigate the root causes of these inequities and apply strategies to eliminate health disparities and improve health outcomes. The MPH is completely online, and students have the flexibility to take classes full-time or part-time.
