Our programs

Master of Public Health

We offer two program options for students:

1. Hyflex Format. Join in-person two weekends per semester (in Grand Rapids, MI) or join your class synchronously online. You have the flexibility to choose which modality works best for you at that time. 


2. Fully Online Format. Join your colleagues and professor synchronously for the two weekend classes and the rest is asynchronous online. This option is great for those who reside out of state, out of the U.S., or wish to be virtual. The online rate provides a tuition reduction for those out of state and out of country residents.
