Students complete five courses which cover the core public health competencies and then select one of three concentrations: (1) Health Promotion, Education and Evaluation; (2) Applied Biostatistics and Epidemiology; or (3) Leadership and Management. All students participate in a supervised field training experience in a public health agency or faculty sponsored research project. Students benefit from a wide array of field study experiences both locally and throughout countries of the Pacific Rim, South Asia, Latin America, and Europe. A capstone project, whereby students demonstrate mastery of public health competencies, serves as the culminating experience
As of Fall 2013, the 48-unit program consists of the following courses.
