The Top Online Masters in Public Health Degree Programs
The application and maintenance of public health in the United States is an important part of the American political agenda. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is a secretary-level organization created to protect the health of Americans and to ensure their access to basic human services. The Centers of Disease Control and Prevention reported in 2012 that about 6% of Americans still fail to obtain necessary medical care due to costs. This has far-reaching implications for the general public health system, and students with formal education in the field are at the forefront of policy issues in ethics, medicine, and law.
Graduate-level education in public health is offered online and is constantly evolving with the discipline. Although public health graduates often work directly with others in discussions and debates, the heavy theory and analysis behind the work can be learned effectively in an online setting. Public health is a field with a wide umbrella, and online programs allow professionals in many different disciplines to take on public health-related work. For example, a nurse can get a Master’s in Public Health and use her medical background to tackle policy issues in Occupational Health Nursing, a relatively new field.
