Master of Public Health Concentrations

Saint Louis University's Master of Public Health program offers eight concentrations, allowing you to develop specialized skills that your future employers will find more valuable.​

Whether you like to investigate disease outbreaks, crunch numbers or develop policies and programs to help communities lead healthier lives, our concentrations will equip you with the real-world skills you rely on in your future career.

Most of the concentrations can be completed in two years or 48 credit hours.

Joint Concentrations​

Many of our students choose to enhance their education by completing two concentrations. Blending concentrations enables you to combine your interests and provides additional skills to make you a stronger candidate in the job market and the flexibility to do more throughout your career in public health.

Joint concentrations require just six additional credit hours to complete (54 credit hours). Many of our alumni tell us that, in the long-term, it is worth the investment.

For example, combining epidemiology with behavioral science and health education provides you with the skills to develop and manage community-based intervention programs, built on sound research and data gained by your additional expertise in epidemiology.

Similarly, global health students can add maternal and child health as a joint concentration to create access to prenatal care in developing nations and improve birth outcomes.

Health policy and management students can use additional epidemiology training to develop evidence-based policies for health care organizations, NGOs, advocacy organizations, think tanks and government.

You will find detailed information about all of the options on each concentration page.
