State Public Health Resources

If you are looking to go to school within the state, options are fairly limited, with only the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock offering CEPH-accredited programs (although they do offer Masters and Doctorate programs with multiple concentrations).

As with most other universities, the MPH is the most common, with the epidemiology, biostatistics, and environmental health concentration options being among the most popular.

Due to the limited options in the state, many people seeking a public health degree while living in Arkansas choose an online MPH program (view more detail on online MPH degrees here). The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences does have an online option for their MPH degree, but the concentration options are limited.

We recommend looking into and contacting multiple online programs to figure out which one is best for you. Some choose an online MPH program because of the price or more flexibility, while others choose based on concentration offering or the name of the university.

Despite the limited offerings, it is encouraging that the state has decided to put forth a valiant effort in regards to public health with their HealthArkansas.com resource. It does show that there are some employment opportunities within the state.
