Public Health Practice

Public Health Practice is an essential component of the MPH degree, providing students with the hands-on training necessary to be successful in the public health workforce.

One of the ways in which students engage in public health practice is through completion of the Applied Practice Experience, formerly known as the Practicum. The Applied Practice Experience is an integral part of the student’s learning experience, providing an opportunity for the student to demonstrate the application of theory into practice within a public health setting. Under the guidance of a public health practitioner, the student will participate in activities that directly impact the public health community through education, research, and advocacy.
