At MPH Online, our mission is to offer prospective public health students and current public health professionals information, guidance, and goals based on the most up-to-date information available. That includes information about degree programs, career paths, and current research in public health. To sustain and grow MPH Online’s resources, we accept compensation from sponsored schools through the contact form readers see on each page.

Our rankings remain entirely objective; none of the sponsored schools influence our rankings, and they do not contribute any data. All of our data comes from independent, legitimate sources like the Department of Education and is verified at the time of publishing. Sponsors are clearly identified as such, and prospective students may choose whether to offer their contact information to the sponsors; no information is gathered without consent.
