Executive MPH (EMPH) Program Update
The Rollins School of Public Health released a new five-year strategic plan in September 2023. The plan is strongly focused on evolving and innovating the school’s educational offerings, including reimagining and enhancing how we serve adult and part-time learners while simultaneously expanding our online offerings.
As Rollins develops a new vision for part-time and online public health education, we will be sunsetting the EMPH program in its current form and will not be recruiting for a fall 2024 class.
Although Rollins has paused enrollment for the EMPH program at this time, there are still opportunities for part-time education. If you would like to learn more about admissions to other Rollins Departments, please visit the Rollins Admissions Page.
