    Communities throughout the world face mounting public health concerns — from environmental contaminants threatening our food and water supplies to the return of once-eradicated infectious diseases.

    The need has never been greater for public health professionals to act as catalysts for change, ensuring the right to healthier lives for all people and populations.

    3. FDU’s Online MPH Program

    4. Fairleigh Dickinson University’s School of Pharmacy and Health Sciences is best known for its new and fast-rising pharmacy program, based near Madison, New Jersey. The Master of Public Health (MPH) is the first online degree offered by the School.

      Built on the University’s mission of excellence in global education, our MPH program seeks to:

      • Enhance access to health locally and globally

      • Recognize the ethical and social responsibility for

        providing access to health care, with the goal of

        minimizing or eliminating health disparities

      • Understand the role of the public health practitioner

        as a leader and advocate with both a local and global perspective

        Studies emphasize hands-on experiences and skill building in critical thinking and innovative problem solving, communi- cation, leadership and interprofessional collaboration.

        Classes include interdisciplinary studies central to effective public health practice, such as epidemiology, social and behavioral determinants of health, environmental health, data analysis, policy and management principles.

        Based on personal preference, you also will pursue more in-depth studies through a 15-credit concentration in one of the following areas: Generalist, Health Analytics and Health Policy. Population Health in Addiction and Recovery will be available as the program develops.
