The Master of Public Health degree is the most widely recognized professional credential for leadership in public health. The MPH program is designed for motivated students and professionals interested in the application of health promotion and disease prevention technologies and interventions designed to improve and enhance the quality of life.
This concentration will provide unique training in the areas of health, methods, statistics, and evaluation. The program examines the theoretical underpinning of public health and their accompanying interventions and provides students with the technical skills to develop, study, and evaluate the effectiveness of current and future health interventions. Academically the program balances public health related content and concepts with rigorous methodological and statistical skills. Students are also trained in the “logic of evaluation,” which enables them to systematically judge the merit worth and significance of health related programs and policies. This academic program fills a specific need for trained health professionals who are able to evaluate the strength and limitations of various global health initiatives. The program provides students with insights that will serve them well intellectually, in the marketplace, and in the field where many will apply their craft. Health evaluators who are also competent in epidemiologic and public health principles will be very well positioned for positions at managed care and other health provider organizations, mental health departments, and federal agencies like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
The positive psychology program offers insight into a new approach of studying psychology. For decades, public health officials and practitioners have sought to understand why some people are able to thrive even when suffering from the most tragic health conditions. Further, scholars and practitioners have long sought to understand why some people can live healthily even though their social and economic environment would predict otherwise. Answering questions such as these are at the heart of positive psychology. By having a degree program that will allow students to learn about both health and positive psychology, we are providing students with a unique combination of insight that will serve them well intellectually, in the marketplace, and in the filed where many will apply their craft. Positive psychologists who are also competent in epidemiologic and public health principles will be well positioned to for positions at managed care and other health provider organizations, mental health departments, and federal agencies like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
The Peter F. Drucker and Masatoshi Ito Graduate School of Management (Drucker) along with the School of Community and Global Health (SCGH) of Claremont Graduate University offer a dual degree program in business administration and public health (MBA/MPH) aimed to provide leadership and management training for the health services industry at the local, national and international levels.
The School of Behavioral and Organizational Sciences along with the School of Community and Global Health offer a dual degree program in applied psychology (health behavior research & evaluation) and public health (health promotion, education & evaluation). Graduates of the M.A./M.P.H. dual degree program will acquire a broad perspective of health-relevant behaviors, as well as program development, evaluation and research skills that are applicable in a wide range of settings.
This program offers qualified students from the undergraduate Claremont Colleges the special opportunity to work simultaneously toward their undergraduate degree and a Master of Public Health (MPH) degree.
The objective of this program is to train exceptional researchers and scholars in the interdisciplinary field of prevention research, from the cellular to the societal level. The well-rounded training that students receive encompasses theory and methods from many allied fields including: communications, psychology, preventive medicine, cultural studies, biostatistics, public health and epidemiology.
The public health graduate certificate provides students with the fundamental skills and knowledge central to each of the five core areas of public health—social and behavioral health, epidemiology, biostatistics, environmental health, and health systems. The certificate program is intended for various audiences, including allied working professionals and students in affiliated graduate programs within the Claremont Consortium. Courses completed with at least a B or better while in the certificate program may be applied toward completion of the Master of Public Health (MPH) degree.

A proposal is under review for a doctoral program in Public Health (DrPH). This program provides knowledge and skills for those working to enhance the quality of human health through the practice of population-based public health interventions that are responsive to the dynamic, ecologically based, interdependent nature of human systems and the environment. It is proposed that the first cohort of students may enroll in the fall 2015 semester.
