Master of Public Health Program Expands to Bismarck and Minot Campuses

The University of North Dakota Master of Public Health Program now offers the MPH Program to students in Bismarck and Minot, North Dakota.

The UND School of Medicine & Health Sciences (SMHS), starting with the fall semester 2016, will offer the MPH Program at a distance to classes based at the SMHS’s Southwest Campus in Bismarck and its Northwest Campus in Minot.

The UND MPH classes will be offered synchronously online, right from the classroom at UND where they are held. Though students in Bismarck and Minot will be encouraged to join their cohort in class on the college campuses there, students from all over North Dakota will be able to participate online—just like many students already do in other UND programs from locations around North Dakota and the country.
