In general, University of Massachusetts Amherst is very good but especially in College of Education's academic life that needs much improvement like in its professor's service to students, less helps its students in attempting for graduating on time and taking a long time for getting degree. And the most difficult problem in the College of Education is to form doctoral committees.
UMASS Amherst has a great online MPH program at a comparatively reasonable cost. The teaching staff are professional, the coursework braod and interesting, the work load is manageable for working people, and the university has a good reputation.
