Virginia Tech’s Public Health Program in the Department of Population Health Sciences is administered by the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine in partnership with the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine and is accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health.
Our Master of Public Health (MPH) program is grounded in an interdisciplinary “One Health” approach that recognizes the interdependence of human, animal, and environmental health. We serve our region – southwestern and southside Virginia and Central Appalachia – as well as train our graduates for careers far beyond in the Commonwealth, nation and the globe.
In order for students to fully appreciate and assimilate the content, the 42-credit program is designed as a two-year, four-semester experience for full-time students with options for part-time and simultaneous degree studies. The program intentionally sequences the courses to ensure continuity in course materials and effective preparation for public health practice. Students formulate their plan of study with faculty advisors to include core, professional preparation, and concentration credits. The MPH degree program offers two concentrations: public health education and infectious disease.
