The School of Health Studies offers programs of graduate study leading to the M.S. in nutrition and dietetics and a Master of Public Health (M.P.H.); and three certificates of graduate study–eating disorders and obesity, health education, and public health.

The M.P.H. curriculum prepares students for leadership positions in health services management and health promotion. Students learn skills in leadership, problem solving, and planning and promoting change in public health and health care systems. The M.P.H. program is fully accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH), an independent accrediting agency for schools of public health, as well as community health education and community health/preventive medicine programs located outside of schools of public health. The Council on Education for Public Health is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.
