  • All MPH students engage in an Applied Practice Experience (Internship) in the community and conclude their coursework with an Integrative Learning Experience (Capstone) in which they pull together skills and perspectives learned in both the core and the concentration courses to produce a high-quality written product
  • All CEPH-accredited MPH concentrations require a minimum of 42 credit hours; some concentrations require additional hours to meet all concentration-specific competencies
