Students can undertake a professional degree in public health (MPH, MHSA, Dr. PH) which positions them towards professional practice. Or, they can seek an academic degree which orients them more towards teaching and/or research (MS, PhD).  Many continue their studies in a related field, such as: development; education; environmental studies; health information systems; law; media and communication studies; medicine; nursing; psychology; toxicology; urban studies; among others. There are many graduate degree programs available internationally.
