Description:
The Master of Public Health (M.P.H.) degree in health policy and leadership prepares participants to analyze, develop, and advocate for health policies, develop leadership principles and skills, enhance the skills required to formally educate the community regarding health policy, and take on a leadership role in community development projects. Participants understand the health policy development process and that health policy is a multidisciplinary field of inquiry and practice concerned with a) social determinants of health and b) the delivery, quality, and costs of health and health care for individuals and populations. The goals of the program are to study new methods of serving others and helping them live better lives by connecting individuals of passion, vision, and initiative with other like-minded individuals in order to successfully initiate, manage, and implement comprehensive health policy programs and projects. The M.P.H. degree Health Policy and Leadership Program promotes a multidisciplinary approach to policy analysis that supports health policymakers’ efforts to make policy decisions that will develop a health system that is accountable to the population it serves—effecting positive, lasting change that will improve health and health services within communities and the state, as well as nationally and internationally.
