The South Dakota Master of Public Health (MPH) online degree program is a collaborative degree offering of South Dakota State University (SDSU) and the University of South Dakota (USD).

SDSU & USD will draw on their strengths addressing the healthcare needs of rural communities and focus the MPH curricula on rural public health, creating a distinct national and regional identity for the program.  The program is designed to train students in the core competencies of public health education and prepare them with the knowledge and skills necessary to assume a variety of positions in South Dakota and beyond.

The MPH degree is the most widely recognized professional credential for leadership and practice in public health.  As outlined by the Council on Education for Public Health, which accredits MPH programs, the MPH will include curriculum from the five core areas of public health education:

  • Biostatistics
  • Epidemiology
  • Health Services Administration
  • Social and Behavioral Sciences
  • Environmental Health

Request information: For more information or questions about the SD MPH Program, please contact the Program Coordinator.  We make every effort to respond to questions within 24 hours.
