The EMPH program is designed with your busy schedule in mind. In addition to two on-campus sessions per semester, this hybrid program allows you to complete most of your coursework online via user-friendly tools.
Earn Your MPH Online
You will view and complete all online lessons through software called Blackboard—a course management software compatible with both Microsoft Windows and Apple operating systems. To log in, you will need to enter your user ID and password (you will receive instructions about your user ID when you receive your Emory acceptance email).
This is where you will log in to access lecture materials, submit assignments, take quizzes, and communicate with the instructor and your classmates. Classes are all instructor-led, not auto-tutorial or self-study. All students in a course engage in a course in the same time frame, but not necessarily at the same moment.
All EMPH students are required to have high-speed Internet access, a computer, and a printer. An iPad or similar device does not provide the needed functionality for the EMPH program. Note that you may periodically need to install plug-ins or specialized browsers, so make sure you have the appropriate permissions to download software on your computer.
Some courses require additional software that is only available in the Microsoft Windows platform. Emory University provides support for the Microsoft Windows platform, limited support for the Apple Macintosh platform, and no support for Linux. Visit Rollins' IT website for more details »
