Master of Public Health in Health Equity (M.P.H.)

Public health is defined by the World Health Organization as "A complete state of physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity". To that end, public health professionals work to protect the health of communities and populations. They accomplish this through education, promotion of healthy behaviors, tracking outbreaks of disease, advocacy, and policy development, setting safety standards, providing direct care, and research and more.

The Master of Public Health program at Bethune-Cookman University is a 45-hour credit program focused on providing a graduate-level public health education within a framework of social justice, health equity, and bold leadership. The program is designed to be completed in five sequential semesters (22 months) and is a residential, cohort program. Students matriculate in the fall semester.
