Online Program Option

The Online MPH in Social and Behavioral Sciences in the College of Public Health is perfect for working professionals and students returning to the classroom while balancing work and family. Classes are taught by the same expert faculty and follow the same curriculum as our on-campus program option. Cutting-edge instructional technology emphasizes natural interaction with professors and other students, and gives you access to personalized instruction and advising.

Our faculty’s strong ties to the community bring real-world issues and agencies into the virtual classroom. Online students also have access to Temple’s libraries, writing center, career center and other resources.

Eligible online MPH students have the option of completing the MSW-MPH dual degree entirely online.

Structure and Delivery

You can complete the Online MPH part time in three years. Courses are offered in an accelerated six-week format and incorporate three forms of learning.

  • Live streaming course delivery links students to Temple’s premier faculty, including web conference-based live class discussions, chat rooms and video meetings.
  • Asynchronous online learning uses discussion boards and other assignments that students complete in their own time.
  • A local fieldwork experience is driven by student interests and ambitions, and guided and supervised by Temple’s expert faculty.

Temple University is able to offer this online program through its participation in SARA (State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement). Contact our online program coordinator with questions or concerns related to out-of-state enrollment or field placement.
