MPH Practicum

All MPH students are required to complete a practicum experience to comply with the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) school of public health accreditation requirements.

The intent of the practicum requirement is to engage students in activities aligned with their career goals, as well as activities that demonstrate application of public health concepts and critical thinking relevant to the student’s area of interest. Students will seek out activities that further develop their skill set and add new tools to their professional toolkit. Upon completion of the MPH program, students will be able to provide evidence of application of these skills to potential employers.
