MPH in Physical Activity
The Highest Standards in Public Health Education within Your Reach
A Master of Public Health with a concentration in Physical Activity trains professionals to effectively quantify physical activity, monitor populations, and design interventions focused on improving health through the promotion of physical activity. Students will learn how to assess physical activity behavior, to apply behavioral theories when designing physical activity interventions, use epidemiology techniques to describe the relationship between physical activity and health, and to develop public health policies aimed at impacting physical activity behavior.
Program of Study
The MPH with a concentration in Physical Activity provides the opportunity to earn an advanced degree within a two-year period by completing 44 credit hours of course work if taking courses full-time (4 courses per semester). Most students are part-time (2 courses per semester) and can complete the degree in 4 years. This is a non-thesis degree but does require a 4-credit field experience of practical application of public health principles under the supervision of a qualified preceptor.
