MPH Online Programs: Master of Public Health / Master of Science in Public Health (MSc. Public Health)

Updated: 2021

Deciding to pursue higher education is exciting and the possibilities are endless. Considering you are on this website, we’ll assume that you have narrowed down your interest to the field of Public Health! The Master of Public Health (MPH) or Master of Science in Public health (MSc. Public Health) degrees are offered online at a number of universities around the world. Online programs offer great flexibility for students who may need it (i.e. working full-time, access to an institution in another city or country). 

We at PH SPOT know how difficult it is to compare all of the available online programs and then decide on the top ones to apply to (been there, done that). So, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to do the preliminary research for you and develop this handy dandy downloadable tool!

Online Public Health Programs

Tips: How to decide which Online MPH/MSc. programs to apply to

  1. Narrow down the list of online programs based on attributes that are important to you, such as length of program, practicum options, the country the institution is based in, or cost. (The preliminary research on each program is available in our tool – download it here.)
  2. Reach out and chat with at least one alumni from each program to understand what it’s like to be a student in the program.
  3. Use the tool we developed for you and add additional columns to capture notes from alumni (and perhaps your own research). Be sure to track everything you discover about the program.
  4. Based on the attributes most important to you and the budget you’ve set aside for grad school applications, decide which programs you’d like to apply to.
  5. Start looking into the application process!

Good luck!
