Master of Public Health Lamar University



Course info


The M.P.H. (Master of Public Health), specializing in Health Disparities is an exclusively online program requiring a total of 42 credit hours. The program requires 27 hours in core and required courses; 9 hours of advisor-approved electives and 6 hours of culminating experience (capstone).

Southeast Texas has a very high rate of chronic conditions including obesity, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and several forms of cancers. Unfortunately, the burden of these chronic conditions is very high among low socioeconomic populations. Addressing these chronic diseases through culturally appropriate interventions is very critical in bridging the gap. Currently, no university in Texas or Louisiana offers a MPH program specializing in health disparities. There is an unmet need in these states for public health professionals who are trained in addressing health disparities.

Degree Requirements:

  • Candidates for the Master of Public Health in Health Disparities must meet all of the College of Graduate Studies general degree requirements.
  • Twenty-seven semester hours of required curriculum core courses.
  • Nine semester hours of Health elective courses.
  • Six semester hours of Capstone.
