Career paths

Potential career paths

The Master program in Public Health will provide knowledge and expertise to a wide range of new graduates and professionals in order to make a difference in their communities and beyond by succeeding in advancing the overall health of populations locally as well as globally.

An MPH degree could open doors far beyond the commonly assumed government career path. It can also serve as a tool to boost an already established career in the health sciences or the healthcare sector. There is a variety of settings in which public health graduates may work:

  • Health department administration, disaster preparedness and public nursing are just three areas in which a public health graduate may work for the government.
  • Whether as a consultant or employee, public health graduates often work for pharmaceutical brands, healthcare organizations or insurance companies.
  • Non-profit roles for public health graduates tend to address gaps in healthcare or specialize in specific populations. For example, a non-profit role may serve minorities or single mothers.
  • Education-related roles often serve as teachers to students in health-related courses at different levels (from primary school to university level).
