Welcome to Baylor University's Master of Public Health (MPH) Degree with specialization in Community Health. We equip students to promote population health in a wide range of public health settings. Our strong practice-based approach, global health opportunities, and low faculty-student ratios provide our students with a quality learning experience that can enhance career development. The Baylor Department of Public Health faculty has a wide range of specialty areas but shares a common focus on population health and equity. The Community Health curriculum includes the core public health courses and additional courses on assessment, planning, evaluation, and research methods in community and public health. Our students are trained in competencies aligned with those of the Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES), preparing them well for the CHES examination and employment opportunities in a variety of local and global community health agencies.
