MPH Program Overview

San Jose State offers two different ways to take the MPH program – through a campus based program that provides an in-depth education into the subject or through a fully accredited online MPH program that is 42 credit units and takes two years to complete. Both options are excellent, and both provide a solid education in the field. The online course requires students to meet once per year for five days on the campus, while the rest of the time students will meet one per week for a live class session online. The programs give students the ability to research, analyze, develop, and implement numerous public health policies and combat various risks that confront the population and its health as a whole.
