Master of Public Health (MPH) programs have been developed across the world as a response to the need for adequately trained individuals to work in the public health areas. Educational departments that deliver MPH programs have a responsibility to ensure that graduates of their programs have the basic knowledge, skills and attitudes to begin a successful career in public health. This article are concentrating on the five core competitive areas of MPH and their requirements, including Biostatistics, Environmental Health Sciences, Epidemiology, Health Policy and Management, and Social and Behavioral Sciences. Our study will provide students with a real-world public health experiences, provide students the opportunity to engage in practice-based learning, applying theoretical knowledge to practice, and should be considered for applying within MPH programs across China.
