MPH Practice Experience

All MPH students are required to complete a Public Health practice experience. This requirement is based upon the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) accreditation Criterion 2.4 (2011). 

A student is eligible to participate in the Public Health Practice Experience after completing at least 21 semester credit hours, has a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better, and has the permission of their academic advisor. 

During the Public Health Practice Experience, students must complete a minimum of 200 contact hours working on a project that enhance professional skills and knowledge.  During the practice experience, student must maintain a portfolio of their progress that will be monitored by the class instructor, their Academic Advisor, and their site supervisor. Upon completion of the practice experience, students are required to present their work during a poster presentation at the end of the semester.   

No exceptions will be granted for the practice experience. The practice experience is designed as a supervised experience based upon the application of competencies gained during the Masters of Public Health program. As such, prior work experience does not qualify as an MPH Practice Experience. For more information, please see the Public Health Practice Experience website.
