Community Health sets out to teach learners about the different roles that society and psychology play in overall local health. Environmental factors, psychological influence, and society may have a dramatic effect on how communities respond to widespread illness and disease, which sets the stage for this course’s instruction on how to manage such factors.
The online MPH in Community Health was introduced for students that are planning on pursuing careers in their own communities. Part of what this degree plan offers is training in community planning, public health administration, and plan evaluation. Schools that offer this program to students often integrate subject matter from the general public health domain, business, global health, and healthcare administration. The purpose of this integration is to introduce students to the various components that can arise when working with the general public in a community setting.
