Earn your MPH degree 100% online or on campus

The Master of Public Health (MPH) degree at Missouri State can now be completed through a fully online option.

The tradition seated (on campus) option is still available, too.

Key details to know

  • Finishing the degree exclusively in either option may take longer. Most students use both online and seated courses to finish the degree in about two years.
  • The online option is also available for the two graduate certificates: public health core and public health administration.
  • The field experience is still required for the online option. Though the field experience can be done locally, you must actually spend the required amount of time (200 to 400 hours) at the public health agency in order to complete the requirements.
