NOTE We are excited to announce that we recently completed a review of our MPH core competencies and curriculum with a goal of increasing the public health practice readiness of our MPH graduates. We will be implementing our new MPH integrated interdisciplinary core courses in fall 2018.

Effective fall 2018, these new core courses will be required for all MPH students admitted to our seven degree specializations. The total credits required for each specialization will not change. All students will complete 15 credits of core courses in the first two terms of the degree program. The first course will be completed on campus beginning on August 27, 2018. Some new core courses may require an immersion component.
