Our DHSc in Population Health prepares leaders to be strategic thinkers and equips them with the practical skills to create and implement solutions to real-world population health problems.
Our online degree and certificate programs offer flexibility, convenience, and the same high quality as our on-site programs. Online courses provide the flexibility to work around your busy schedule and at your own pace — participating from anywhere that offers access to the Internet.
Online does not mean “on your own.” In addition to the independence of online learning, our students enjoy participating in Jefferson College of Population Health’s thriving learning communities. You will be introduced to your community and to online study at JCPH through a comprehensive online orientation to help provide a smooth transition into each program’s coursework, resources, and student colleagues.
You will also benefit from our application of best practices in online education that enhance learning and expand critical thinking skills. Equally important, you will be paired with a personal faculty mentor — a nationally recognized expert in the field — who will provide guidance with the capstone project.
