Time Commitment

The fully online program offers flexible eight- and 16-week courses with weekly deadlines.

Expect to spend 12 to 18 hours each week attending sessions, watching lectures, studying, preparing assignments and collaborating with your cohort team members. You will complete reading, online work, team projects, case studies, and a practicum at the end of the program.

Vacation periods are just that - time off for you. Classes will not be held on holidays, and assignments will not be due during your breaks.

Cohort Design

A cohort is a group of 15 to 25 peers with whom you will take all of your courses. Your cohort will be your learning community that supports and challenges you as you develop personally and professionally into an effective public health leader.

Cohorts begin in the fall and spring semesters. Contact an Admissions counselor for more information.
