Master of Public Health
CEPH Accredited Program
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.
San Jose State University offers an MPH degree with a specialization in community health education in two formats: On Campus (regular session) and Online (through the College of Professional and Global Education, "CPGE").
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.
Our ultimate goal is public health and social justice through planned, organized, and empowering community efforts.
