"The Creighton University Master of Public Health has been a phenomenal program. Our reading material was captivating, and in many ways soul searching. The material extended my personal philosophy of ensuring compassionate care for all, through utilizing what Powers and Faden (2006) described as the “six core dimensions [of well-being]: health, personal security, reasoning, respect, attachment, and self-determination (p. 16)."

I can truly appreciate how power, well-being and self-respect can impact someone’s health. Access to provocative readings and documentaries throughout our course increased my level of compassion for those less fortunate, and my ability to recognize how policies can positively or negatively affect people’s lives."

"The most valuable experience was giving the presentations and speeches during my practicum at the middle school. During this presentation, I was able to educate the parents on healthy eating habits and pediatric illnesses."

"The MPH program has provided me a solid framework to continue to build upon as I continue my work as a public health professional. Day-to-day interaction with the general public can be rewarding, humorous, fun, interesting, knowledge building, challenging, and exhausting. Jesuit values woven into the course work at Creighton help me in my interaction with people every day. There is not a day that goes by without some conflict or stress that I do not pull from the Jesuit teachings to make the stress easier."

"Creighton’s MPH program was impressive in the sense that the program covered a wide range of public health issues and all demographics. To be involved in public health means to be selfless and work towards improving the health needs of others, and I think the students attracted to Creighton’s online program should be highly self-motivated with a passion to reach out and connect with those in their program, the professors, and in turn, impact their own community."

Alumni

"Creighton’s MPH program provided me with an up-to-date public health education that covered the essential functions and core competencies of public health practice. This MPH program addressed the essential needs of the emerging public health workforce and current trends in the field of public health, which included great disparities in access to resources; great needs for innovative initiatives that will be supported by informed and skilled advocates; great inequalities in the quality of life of diverse populations; and, many new and emerging public health threats. Creighton’s Masters of Public Health Program has enriched me with a comprehensive and relevant education that addressed all of these challenges and prepared me well to advance in my career.

Creighton University’s Masters of Public Health is a rigorous academic program. After just completing this program and earning my MPH this semester, I have already enjoyed career advancement opportunities and have found that I am now prepared with the essential tools to practice as a well-rounded and well-informed public health practitioner. I particularly appreciated the humanistic and holistic approaches of this MPH program to the health issues we face in our communities. The faculty and academic support provided in this program was consistently impressive and my living far from campus was no barrier to my learning. The professionalism, community-centered orientation, and Jesuit pedagogy formed a solid values-based foundation of the program that has established an everlasting impact in my professional career as an educator and program director. I am proud to call myself a Creighton University MPH alumna."
