Public health education at Queen’s puts the spotlight on what works in public health.
The Queen’s University Master of Public Health is a professional, course-based degree that educates, equips and inspires students to take Evidence-Informed Action for Public Health.
The degree is 16 consecutive months in duration, attracting applicants from a range of disciplines.
A 12-month accelerated program is available for candidates with at least two years of cumulative paid work experience in health care, public health or a related field.
Through a combination of courses, skills workshops, and a 400 hour summer practicum placement, our students learn to:
- Think like public health professionals – we educate students on public health theory and methods
- Perform like public health professionals - we equip students with practical skills and competencies
- Behave like public health professionals – we inspire students to lead with the ethics and values of public health
We teach our students face-to-face and prioritize collaborative learning. We value our students and support them to succeed. Our Master of Public Health class size is approximately 35 students per year.
