Masters in Public Health School Rankings

Every university of any size has a school of public health today. Healthcare in general and public health in particular are fast growing industries with steadily expanding rosters of professions. The Master of Public Health has become an important and popular graduate level academic option for students and mid-career professionals who are interested in public sector employment. The master's degree combined with work experience garnered either before or after completion of the MPH degree should open doors to management level opportunity. In many city and county public health departments, those management opportunities involve direct delivery of services. At the state and federal level, public health management may involve program oversightor funding management. Public health and public health professions are in a permanent growth mode it seems, subject only to budget constraints that continue to press on government in general.
