Master of Public Health
Accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health
Our MPH Program was founded in 1970 to prepare community health education practitioners and has been continuously accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) since 1974. CEPH is the independent agency officially recognized to accredit graduate programs in public health. As stated in its mission statement, CEPH assures quality in public health education and training to achieve excellence in practice, research and service, through collaboration with organizational and community partners.
San José State University offers an MPH degree with a specialization in community
health education in two formats: On Campus (regular session) and Online (through Professional and Global Education). Both on campus and online students engage
in the same rigorous course of study. The MPH degree on campus offers students the
flexibility to complete their degree in two years or more, depending on personal circumstances.
The MPH-Online option is offered through special session and is a fast-paced, 24-month
program of study.
The SJSU MPH Program is well-known for its practice-oriented, community-based training. The program's essential mission is:
