The College’s CEPH-accredited program of public health now includes its Master of Public Health (MPH) with six concentrations, a BS in Community Health, and the newly accredited MS in Global Health.

The accreditation process includes a multi-level review to ensure the program meets the standards developed by public health academics and practitioners and that the curriculum is aligned to the current workforce and public health needs.

The CHHS Department of Global and Community Health prepares students for careers in community and public health, epidemiology, global health, health policy, and public health communication. The College is taking steps to become a College of Public Health in the future.
