The MPH in health policy and management is a 42-credit graduate program that includes core courses shared across an interdisciplinary core as well as a required applied practice experience and integrative learning experience. Courses in population health policy are supplemented by courses in health policy and management content areas (e.g., program evaluation, financial management, conflict resolution, and inequities in health and healthcare) and public health electives from across the University of Delaware.
The program is designed to be completed in 15 months—see the plan of study for more details. Limited, competitive funding opportunities are available for exceptional students.
UD also offers an MPH in epidemiology, available through the College of Health Sciences. The two MPH tracks share 15 credits of core courses, but diverge in specialized coursework. Applicants to the MPH must apply to a specific track.
Biden School students in the MPH in health policy and management program are able to pursue a variety of areas of focus by registering for elective courses within a specialty area. Possible areas of focus include:
The University of Delaware is an applicant for accreditation by the Council on Education for Public Health. The accreditation review will address the MPH in Epidemiology and the MPH in Health Policy and Management. Other degrees and areas of study offered by this institution will not be included in the unit of accreditation review.
A new requirement
beginning in Fall 2023, in order to be considered for admission, applicants to
the MPH in Health Policy and Management must submit an application and all
required materials through SOPHAS
– the Centralized Application Service for Public Health. MPH
applications submitted through the University of Delaware’s graduate
application management system will not be reviewed unless a full application is
completed in the SOPHAS – the Centralized Application Service for Public Health first.
This application change is part of efforts to elevate the MPH degree here at
University of Delaware by becoming accredited with the Council on Education for
Public Health (CEPH). SOPHAS is a
centralized application service used by all public health programs that are
accredited (or seeking accreditation) from CEPH.
