Our Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) accredited MPH Program in Community Health Education offers an innovative 44 unit curriculum in community health education that promotes social justice and develops culturally and professionally competent leaders in the field of public health.
PEDAGOGY & PHILOSOPHY: Our applied curriculum emphasizes collaborative learning, teamwork, leadership, writing, and presentation skills and features a supervised team practice experience, intensive culminating experience, and the development of professional products appropriate for use in the field.
COHORT LEARNING COMMUNITY: A new cohort of students enters the program together each fall semester, and progresses as a learning community through most of the courses in a set sequence. We require our entering students to have had at least two years full-time equivalent health-related work experience, preferably health equity work in the public health field.
COMMITMENT: The program requires a minimum of five semesters to complete, including the summer semester between the first and second years. To accommodate working professionals, most of the program courses and activities are concentrated into two days/evenings per week.
