Competencies

CHEPH Acceditted MPH Degree Program

The national competencies for public health professional preparation programs published by the Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH) guide our SF State MPH program. Additionally, because our public health degree is specific to community health education, we also ground in the responsibilities, competencies and sub-competencies developed jointly by the Society for Public Health Education (SOPHE), the American Association for Health Education (AAHE), and the National Commission for Health Education Credentialing, Inc (NCHEC). Our SF State program addresses an additional responsibility to include health equity and cultural humility as critical components of public health practice.
