Virtual classroom convenience
The distance learning program makes it possible for full time working professionals to earn an accredited Master of Public Health (MPH or MSPH) degree while taking "live" classes on line in the evenings. Our classes are all on line and offered synchronously. This means that you enter our virtual classroom with other students and the professor in real time. You never have to come to campus.*
*Air Sampling (required for MSPH in Industrial Hygiene) has a one week on campus laboratory requirement at Tulane all other classes entirely on line.
Online course delivery
- User-friendly interface to the virtual classroom
- "Concierge" type technical support. The distance learning (DL) IT staff focus is solely on DL students and supporting them and do not support other
IT or university issues. They are here for YOU!
- Accessible from any location at any time via the Internet. We have had students complete their degree from an oil rig 100 miles off the African coast
- Using Blackboard you are able to: turn in assignments, view recorded lectures, participate in discussion boards and connect with faculty.
- For classes requiring group work we can create virtual environment for your study group and meeting sites.
- Even though on line your access to faculty and other students is virtually unlimited.
Student technical requirements are minimal. You need only to have a computer that can connect to the Internet and have word processing cab abilities to be successful as a distance learning student. Our IT staff will help configure your machine so that with a click of a link you are brought to the virtual classroom or to Blackboard.
We also supply the recorded lectures in multiple formats for your mobile devices. Want to listen to lecture while computing? No problem go to your Blackboard account and download the latest mp3 or mp4 version of the lecture. Prefer to see the video recording of the entire lecture not just sound? Easy, just down load the video recording to either your computer or your mobile device for use at your leisure.
