The UNC Charlotte MPH program

The UNC Charlotte Master of Public Health (MPH) program is an in-person plan of study that prepares students to apply core principles of evidence-based, public health practice within a variety of professional settings; our graduates are competent members of the public health workforce. The MPH curriculum is based on the collective needs, expectations, and requirements of regional and national public health partners, employers, and accreditation bodies.

Students develop specialized skills in one of three concentrations:

  • Community Health Practice (CHPR)
  • Epidemiology (EPID)
  • Physical Activity & Nutrition (PANU)
  • Population Health Analytics (PHAN) – Not accepting applications at this time.

NOTE: UNC Charlotte’s MPH Program is NOT STEM-designated.
