概要：Candidates for the M.P.H. degree come to the School with a wide variety of backgrounds and experience and have particular needs and objectives to meet. At the same time, society has certain expectations of training standards for its public health professionals. Thus, students have a responsibility to society as well as to themselves to plan and pursue meaningful programs of professional training. The M.P.H. degree has both depth and breadth requirements. To satisfy the depth requirement, each candidate is expected to pursue a particular program of study designed with the assistance of the faculty adviser.
Breadth has two components. The first is to obtain a general understanding of the areas of knowledge basic to public health; these areas include the following:
biological, physical, and chemical factors which affect the health of a community;
concepts and methods of relevant social and behavioral sciences;
distribution of diseases or conditions in populations and factors that influence this distribution;
collection, storage, retrieval, analysis, and interpretation of health data; and
planning, policy analysis, and administration of health programs.
