NOTE (on October 12, 2017): 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 anticipate implementing our new MPH integrated interdisciplinary core courses in fall 2018.

Effective fall 2018, these new core courses will be required for students admitted to any of the seven degree specializations. The total credits required for each specialization will not change. Some new core courses may require an immersion component.
