The Dual MPH/MSMOB Degree

A Dual Degree in Management and Organizational Behavior and Public Health

The online Dual Master of Public Health/Master of Science in Management and Organizational Behavior (MSMOB) degree arms you with the knowledge and skills necessary to motivate organizational behavior change, identify areas for community health improvement and formulate strategic plans.

How Does the Dual Degree Program Work?

Students in the dual degree program must be accepted into both degree programs. You will first complete one degree program in its entirety and then begin courses for the second degree. Upon completion you will earn two diplomas.  

The program can be completed in just 26 courses, as opposed to the 39 courses that would be required taking each degree separately.

The Public Health Internship Experience

Through the MPH internship experience you are able to practice what you have learned hands-on under the direct supervision of faculty. Whether you are looking to advance your current career or position yourself for a new career, the internship experience provides you with 240-hours of field experience that can help strengthen your resume.

Intern With Your Current Organization

We understand that returning to school, managing a full-time career and an internship can be a heavy workload. If you are already working in your desired field, however, you can complete your internship with your current employer as long as you meet the following requirements:

  • You’ll be engaged in activities that are not a part of your regular job.
  • Your employer will guarantee that the required clock hours for the internship don’t overlap with those you’re already compensated for under your current employment contract.
  • There will be a qualified preceptor (master’s degree trained personnel in a public health related field) within the place of employment who can oversee the internship experience.
