Approximately one year after introducing a very successful M.H.A. Master of Healthcare Administration bridge program, Crean College is pleased to announce a second articulation agreement with Concordia University in Irvine. The new offering is an M.P.H. Master of Public Health with an emphasis in Community Health Education. Both agreements carry the same perks for Chapman students (tuition discount, early-start option, and online learning) and appeal to those who want to work in healthcare but not necessarily as clinicians. There are some major differences in the types of work each program prepares students for. Luckily, Concordia administrators and Crean Career Advisor Heidi Swanson will be holding regular virtual info sessions for those who wish to learn more.

Registration via Handshake is required.

Why get an MPH in Public Health?

In the ever-changing context of our healthcare industry, the demand for professionals trained in public health is dramatically increasing. Interest from health undergrads and those in related disciplines has exploded recently due to the pandemic. Plus, positions related to public health are predicted to grow nearly 32% nationwide by 2029 – nearly double the rate for all other occupations.

What kind of work does an MPH prepare you for?

Effective leaders in public health have the opportunity to inform and empower individuals, communities, and populations to make healthy choices, to reduce morbidity and mortality, and to decrease health expenditures. Public health is also a prime field for contributing to those in underserved areas, including urban, rural, and international populations. Those in public health essentially create policies and proactive measures to prevent injury and reduce the spread of disease among populations all over the world.

Where can those with an MPH work?

  • Public Health Agencies
  • Non-profit, community-based health
  • Consulting Firms
  • Health Systems
  • Hospitals
