Master of Public Health

UND's M.P.H. Program has a 100% graduate employment rate in health-related careers and is one of only a few  programs with an emphasis on big health data analytics.

We prepare students to respond to the growing demand for public health professionals who can transform data into information for decision-making. The size of health data is growing exponentially, and the skills to ‘mine’ big data are exceptionally valued by public and private health agencies, as well as healthcare provider and payer organizations. Therefore, both M.P.H. specializations – Population Health Analytics and Health Management & Policy – emphasize analytics. The program’s Center for Comparative Effectiveness provides a laboratory for training in analytics.
