Public Health - Graduate
Change a degree-major of an existing program
Master of Public Health- Community Health Major
Summary of the Changes:
The MPH is accredited by the Council for Education on Public Health (CEPH). Most CEPH accredited MPH programs have a public health core consisting of 15-21 credit hours (one class for each of the 5 core areas). In order to be consistent with the trend and marketable to potential students we would like to reduce our core requirements from 24 to 21 hours. The class we are proposing to remove from the core is PHC 5370 Biological Foundations of Public Health. This course is not one of the five public health core areas. It is considered one of seven cross cutting areas which are all integrated into the core and major courses. Finally, we are requesting to change the major name from community health to public health for consistency.
