Leadership starts here.
In Fall 2012, the Mailman School of Public Health introduced the Accelerated MPH, an intensive, one-year program designed for highly motivated professionals seeking to enhance their career with a degree in public health. The curriculum is similar to the innovative curriculum of the 2-year Columbia MPH but completed at a faster, more demanding pace.
The curriculum is the result of an intensive schoolwide effort and investment involving more than 150 members of the faculty plus students, alumni, and employers. It provides the broad systemic understanding, critical thinking skills, and leadership training needed to tackle today’s complex public health challenges and work effectively in a variety of professional settings.
The structure of the 1-year degree program includes five components (see clickable graphic below), carefully timed and integrated so that learning in one part of the program informs activities and assignments in another.
