Your search for a flexible, affordable public health master’s program may very well lead you to look primarily at online options. Not only are online MPH programs often more affordable, they put you in a position to make the most of your time, something any busy grad student can appreciate.
Some of the best MPH programs in America are located in expensive metro areas, and over the course of the typical two-year program, rent and cost-of-living expenses can really add up. And if you’re working your way through school, picking up and relocating isn’t really an option anyway. Online programs sidestep all those concerns. They let you streamline your schedule to fit the lifestyle you’re currently leading, instead of forcing you to adapt to a rigid class schedule.
What you need is a top-flight education that won’t leave you drowning in debt, and enough flexibility to be able to take in the course content at a time and place that fits your schedule. Seems reasonable to us; and that’s why we put together this list of our top recommended online MPH programs in America.
The first and only fully online MPH program in Kentucky [at Western Kentucky University] offers a comprehensive generalist degree plan with plenty of elective options to let you customize your education to align with your own career plan. As a competency-based course that focuses on integrative learning, you can expect to learn the essential elements of public health service, and then demonstrate your mastery of these subjects through both written work and a final ILE presentation. You get plenty of options when it comes to demonstrating what you’ve learned, whether through a traditional thesis, a capstone applied practice experience, independent investigations, or an internship. Practicality and performance fit right in with the Kentucky ethos of self-reliance and quiet competence, and the excellent online offering here allows you to get all the benefits of a world class education without having to be on campus every day.
