Would you like to lead the effort to advance public health practices in community-based settings? The Doctor of Public Health (DrPH) program from Walden University can help you become a leader in your field. 

One of the shortest and most affordable online programs of its kind, this multidisciplinary degree program can help you build competencies in leadership and advocacy while gaining key insights into issues such as budgeting, communication, politics, and program evaluation. You’ll also gain an understanding of how to apply research to promote positive change—in your organization, in your community, and across entire populations.

This online public health doctoral program features two tracks, depending on your academic background:

  • For students who hold a Master of Public Health (MPH); allows the student to forgo foundational public health courses and complete the program in a shorter amount of time.
  • For students who have a master’s degree in an academic discipline other than public health.


Walden University is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission. Accreditation validates that a university and its programs are rigorous and offer relevant content. Walden University’s accreditation means:

  • The quality of the institution and its programs are continually reassessed and improved.
  • Credits earned are easier to transfer than credits earned at non-accredited institutions.
When evaluating credentials, employers and universities often look for applicants who earned a degree from an accredited university.
