The Master of Public Health (MPH) degree at the University of Toledo, is accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) with a vision for a healthy and thriving Northwest Ohio.

The Mission of the Master of Public Health Program at the University of Toledo is to provide education, conduct research and render service to improve and maintain the quality of life of the public by emphasizing the promotion of health and well-being and the prevention and remediation of injury and illness.

In support of its vision and mission, the MPH program has these goals:

  • To develop, deliver and evaluate a curriculum that integrates theoretical and practical aspects of public health.
  • To design, conduct, interpret, critique and disseminate basic and applied research in public health
  • To engage in activities related to public health that are designed to benefit various populations and organizations

Each of the five MPH majors requires 45 semester credit hours for completion. The curriculum for each major includes 24 semester credit hours of foundational courses, 15 semester credit hours of major-specific courses and six semester credit hours of elective courses.

Students are admitted for fall and spring semesters with courses being offered in all semesters.


The University of Toledo (UToledo) and Bowling Green State University (BGSU) functioning as the Northwest Ohio Consortium for Public Health (NOCPH) is accredited by CEPH. UToledo and BGSU have agreed to dissolve NOCPH. UToledo has submitted an application to continue the accreditation without any partners and plans to undergo the next accreditation review by fall 2020. Based on this timeline, the MPH program will not have any lapse in accreditation. Initial accreditation was granted on June 1, 2001.
