Master of Public Health

Forge a career dedicated to advancing community health worldwide.

Charisma University’s Master of Public Health (MPH) program, with concentrations in epidemiology, international public health, environmental health, or public health systems, is designed for a global student body. This program combines academic and professional education with practical applications, preparing students for effective public health practice in their home countries.

Emphasizing both performance competency and affective development, the curriculum extends beyond knowledge-based learning, focusing on skills such as Internet and secondary research, as well as proficiency in software like MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint, SPSS, and more. The program also includes a unique emphasis on developing creative, decision-making, and analytical skills.

For pre-career learners, a required 6-credit internship offers hands-on experience, as opposed to the standard 3-credit capstone course for other students, ensuring practical exposure in the field of public health.
