Seminars and electives will be taught as needed by the largest number of students. Field experience, capstone, and individual study courses will be taught every semester as required by individual students. MGT 701 is taught in a seated modality every semester.

Blended courses meet for at least 24 hours in class during a semester and are supplemented with online work. Check with the instructor for the dates of class meetings.

Summer offerings vary but will usually include PBH 756 in a seated format.​​​

In addition to comprehensive curriculum, the program includes a field experience internship with a public health agency. This practical experience builds valuable on-the-job skills while allowing you to grow your professional network.
