The Master of Public Health (MPH) degree is the primary professional degree in the field of public health. The MPH degree is intended for students who plan careers as practitioners and leaders in the field of public health.

The program is operated as one component of the Colorado School of Public Health (ColoradoSPH) which is a cooperative program between the University of Colorado (CU) Anschutz Medical Campus, CSU, and the University of Northern Colorado (UNC). The ColoradoSPH is accredited by the Council on Education in Public Health. The program is an interdisciplinary Special Academic Unit at Colorado State University.
