Master of Public Health Degree Program

Under exploration

What to expect

Wingate is exploring the addition of a Master of Public Health degree program, with an emphasis on flexibility. The University hopes to add a program to meet your unique needs by offering it online and including self-driven modules. The concept is for the program to be as flexible as the degree itself – preparing you for the many career opportunities available to public health professionals.

Coursework being explored for inclusion:

  • Epidemiology
  • Biostatistics
  • Qualitative and quantitative research methods
  • Data management
  • Health policy and financing

When can potential students apply

Wingate is exploring adding the Master of Public Health program with an eye toward the fall of 2021. Check back in January 2021 for updates.

One of the things we are exploring doing with a master's of public health program is the opportunity for a dual degree with our graduate health professions. For example, we anticipate many students from the physician assistant program, pharmacy program, physical therapy program or occupational therapy program may be interested in obtaining a dual degree in their profession and also in public health. Having dual degrees would make them that much more competitive within the workforce.
