Make Meaningful Change

The Tufts University Master of Public Health (MPH) Program arms you with the academic foundation and practical skills you need to make a difference in the community and around the globe. Join a group of passionate, committed public health practitioners and scholars driven to solve some of the toughest challenges facing society today.

Tailored Public Health Education

As a Tufts MPH student, you’ll begin with rigorous foundational coursework, then customize your course of study by pursuing an individualized track or one of four concentrations available in our on-campus program:

If you would prefer to pursue an online program, we offer the same CEPH-accredited MPH curriculum in our Online MPH in Epidemiology and Biostatistics.

You can further personalize your education by choosing from electives tailored to your unique career goals.

Real World. Hands On.

Central to the program, you’ll design and complete an Applied Learning Experience (ALE). Working with a preceptor at an outside agency on a real-world project, you’ll use the ALE to apply what you’ve learned in the classroom to address a specific public health challenge. You’ll gain skills, practical experience, and professional connections that prepare you for career success. And you can choose to conduct your ALE internationally – a unique way to bring a global health focus to your degree.

Collaborative and Supportive

Our collaborative environment creates new opportunities to learn. Classes are small, which means more chances to engage with students who have different backgrounds and perspectives. And you’ll work with diverse faculty who are also successful practitioners. They’ll go above and beyond to support you through every aspect of your academic experience.

Extensive Dual Degree Options

Our MPH program also offers a range of relevant dual degrees, including:

100% of our 2019 MPH graduating class was employed or continuing education within 1 year of graduation. (Based on survey responses and public profiles.)
