Practicum

Practicum

Putting knowledge into practice is what drives public health; so to prepare professionals for advanced careers, the MPH online program
includes a practicum that combines field training with a leadership seminar and capstone course. Students choose a public health agency within their desired geographic location, such as a local health department, community-based organization, or research center, and practice leveraging new knowledge for a guided, hands-on experience. Students will be assisted by the practicum coordinator to help prepare and guide them in finding a practicum experience that is challenging and rewarding. In the capstone course, students write a research paper that integrates lessons from their field training with the competencies they have built throughout the program.
