The MPH Task Force has been charged with reviewing current SPHHS core curriculum (including consideration of core courses, and the MPH practicum and final project requirements), studying the integrated MPH core curricula of other CEPH-accredited programs, and exploring whether changes to its current core courses and/or organizational structures for the MPH degree are needed to meet the current required competencies as outlined by the Council for Education on Public Health (CEPH). It aims to complete its charge through a sustainable, transparent, and holistic revision process.
The MPH Task Force will submit a report of its recommendations for revising the MPH degree programs to the Dean and the SPHHS Curriculum Committee in September 2020. A draft will be made available for all faculty to review as well. Ultimately, the SPHHS plans to implement any curricular changes prior to Fall 2021.
Any changes will not impact students currently enrolled in the MPH program and will go into effect for students who enter the program after the changes are approved.
The MPH Task Force wishes to be transparent about its work and welcomes suggestions from the SPHHS community. SPHHS faculty, staff, and students can view their work and provide feedback HERE. Additionally, please contact MPH Task Force chair Katherine Reeves with any thoughts or questions.
