Welcome to the Master of Health Science Program at Boise State University. The MHS program is a master’s degree program in public health, and is intended to broadly train professionals to make substantive contributions to the health of individuals and communities. The MHS program has been deliberately structured to not only facilitate the education of the traditional student completing their undergraduate degrees who wish to further prepare themselves before entering the workforce, but also to facilitate the career success of professionals who are currently working in public health agencies, health care institutions, and in private practice. Students in the degree program receive an excellent background in important public health issues and acquire essential skills through the completion of core courses, as well as completion of one of the four emphasis tracks: Health Research, Health Policy, Health Promotion, and Health Services Leadership. Coursework and training in these emphasis tracks allow students to develop a strong, focused understanding and skill set to excel in addressing specific types of public health concerns. In addition to completing all required core and emphasis track coursework, students have the option of completing a master’s thesis or project, or choosing additional elective credits.
