Master of Public Health


M.P.H. students focus their studies in one of the following areas: 

  • Biostatistics
  • Chronic Disease Epidemiology
  • Environmental Health Sciences
  • Epidemiology of Microbial Diseases
  • Health Care Management
  • Health Policy
  • Social and Behavioral Sciences

The Global Health Concentration or Regulatory Affairs Certification may be added to any of the areas of study. 

All M.P.H. students are encouraged to pursue elective courses from other departments within YSPH and from throughout the University in order to benefit from the strengths of Yale’s graduate and professional schools, and to understand the complexity and multidimensionality of public health issues.

A unique sequencing of courses, community-based practice activities, and field or laboratory research provides students with multiple opportunities to tailor their academic programs to their specific career interests.
