The MPH-VPH program is also open to other professionals who wish to be trained in the epidemiology of zoonotic and foodborne diseases, food safety, environmental health, preparedness and emergency response, as well as obtains a strong base in biostatistics and epidemiology. The degree can be earned in 1.5 to 2 years, which includes course work, a practicum or field experience, and a culminating project.
