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 International and Extended Studies). 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:

To provide professional education that prepares both students and graduates with knowledge, conceptual frameworks, health education and public health competencies, in order to develop programs, build community capacity, and advocate policy for health equity.

The MPH program's mission is achieved through an integrated program of instruction, research, and service, carried out in close collaboration with a diverse network of community programs and practitioners. Our ultimate goal is public health and social justice through planned, organized, and empowering community efforts.

MPH Information Meetings

If you are interested in applying to our MPH Program, we encourage you to attend one of our MPH information meetings. As we are not able to hold private meetings with potential applicants, this is the best place to meet faculty and students and also get answers to many of your admissions questions.  Informational meeting dates and times for Fall 2018 Admission will be held both on campus at SJSU (held in Spartan Complex-SPX 210) and Online at Zoom. The Zoom Link will be provided below on the day prior to the Information Session.
