MPH On Campus Format

SJSU Tower Hall

MPH Campus format

To the greatest extent possible, our MPH campus format is designed for working people. Most of the classes meet in the afternoon or evenings, only once a week. Although two of four core courses must be completed during the first three semesters, students are otherwise free to plan out their MPH course of study in a way that meets their interests, resources, and priorities.

It is possible to complete the program in two years going full-time, taking 3-4 classes per semester, conducting full-time fieldwork during the first summer, and meeting the university's graduation requirement through a comprehensive exam. However, most students are more comfortable completing 42 total units and 400 hours of fieldwork over three years, and some even stretch it out to four or five!
