Many of the MPH concentrations in the School of Public Health are available completely online and do not require any travel to Birmingham. These online degree programs are identical to the on-campus versions and award the same degree upon completion. All online students are assigned both an academic and a faculty advisor and have access to all UAB and School of Public Health resources necessary to be successful. The MPH portion of the coordinated degrees listed below are also available completely online.

Consistently ranked as some of the best online public health programs in the nation, our online offerings are carefully designed using best practices in online education to provide an exceptional educational experience. All courses are asynchronous, meaning students can view course content, work on assignments, and coordinate team-based work at times convenient for their schedules. Courses are taught by the same highly qualified faculty who teach on campus; these faculty are regularly available to consult with online students by email, phone, or video conference via Zoom. Students in online MPH degree programs can complete their required Applied Practice Experience (Internship) in their local area; assistance is provided in locating appropriate internship opportunities.

The School of Public Health has alumni across the country and abroad who are willing to network with current students as they prepare for employment after graduation.
