"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."
