Health Policy and Management (MPH)
The MPH in Health Policy and Management (one of five MPH degrees) is designed to develop professionals in the field of public health who have a clear understanding of the health policy and management of health- related programs, as well as the associated implications for public health practice and the impact on population health outcomes.

Fieldwork is a requirement of the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH), the accrediting body of all U.S. schools and programs of public health, for completion of the Master of Public Health (MPH) degree. The MPH culminating experience “requires a student to synthesize and integrate the knowledge acquired in coursework and other learning experiences and to apply theory and principles in a situation that approximates some aspect of professional practice”. Fieldwork I and II are taken consecutively during the last two semesters of the MPH program and are completed at the same fieldwork site. More on Fieldwork within the MPH.
