Regis College’s online MPH program is designed for working professionals who are compassionate, resourceful, service-oriented people, aspiring to be change agents in their communities by helping to improve public health.
Today’s public health professionals play an integral role in monitoring health trends and advancing policy. This means observing changes to community health and safety, measuring the impact of disease and illness, working to improve access to health care resources, and addressing inequities in care delivery. Regis can prepare you to meet these emerging challenges on a local, state, or national level.
The MPH online is offered through the Regis College School of Health Sciences. The program is designed for working professionals who are compassionate, resourceful, service-oriented, and aspiring to be change agents in their communities by working to improve public health.

Public Health Degree Concentrations
The MPH online offers two concentrations to focus your public health curriculum:
Epidemiology is focused on investigation and exploration, offering you the opportunity to design public health studies for specific diseases, analyze key data points, and report on your findings. It can include the study of infectious or chronic diseases and other public health issues such as disabilities and social and environmental concerns. Epidemiologists have a passion for disease investigation, collecting data, and analyzing statistics.Learn More
Health Policy and Management
The study of health policy and management (HPM) introduces students to differing perspectives on the delivery of care to various populations. It includes analysis of health care ethics and economics, as well as the development and implementation of policies and programs in light of current and emerging needs. People in HPM effect change through health care policy and how it relates to health services in their community.Learn More
