How many credit hours do I need to complete my MPH in Ohio?

KSU’s MPH programs consist of a minimum of 46 credit hours organized in four curricular domains:

  • 19 hours in the Core courses
  • 15 hours in a specialization area
  • Six hours of elective
  • Six hours of practicum

These hours are required by our accrediting body, Council on Education for Public Health.

Specific class requirements may vary depending on which of the five MPH specializations a student chooses to pursue, but the number of credit hours remains the same. The overall public health curriculum is designed to help students gain the real-world knowledge and skills needed to pursue success in this dynamic and continually growing industry.
