Master of Public Health - Urban Health
The School of Public Health at the University of Memphis offers a CEPH-accredited MPH degree with a concentration in Urban Health. The online MPH has the same format as the on-campus program, requiring 42 credit hours that include completion of an applied practical experience and either a master’s project or thesis. This concentration is designed to equip students with the knowledge and skills to address complex health issues specific to urban areas. Focusing on racial disparities and cultural competency, graduates are prepared for positions in government agencies and non-profits to develop and evaluate culturally appropriate programs and conduct community needs assessments to improve the health of diverse urban populations.
