The MPH Program is a 45-credit program requiring students to complete the Pitt Public Health core courses (18 credits), the departmental core courses (11-15 credits), required electives, and open electives. 

Electives are selected from a range of approved courses that pertain to a student’s area of concentration or interest. Students are required to complete a practicum in a public health setting and prepare an essay or thesis that addresses an issue of public health significance and that demonstrates the ability to synthesize information from numerous sources.  The MPH program is designed to be completed in four semesters of full-time study.  An option does exist for finishing in three semesters.

Please refer to the MPH Handbook found on our website.
