Global Health MPH Practicum
A Global Health MPH Practicum provides students with hands-on experience in public health practice, allowing them the opportunity to apply and learn new public health strategies.
Students complete a minimum of 120 hours in their practicum and are afforded the opportunity to develop and apply certain competencies that can be better developed outside of the classroom such as: development of leadership ability and group process skills, political awareness and communication skills, understanding of public and private financing mechanisms, and understanding organizational behavior.
Global Health MPH Thesis
The Global Health MPH Thesis is an original, independent scholarly analysis of a practice-based or research-based project that aims to generate new knowledge of a public health problem with broad implications or to address a very specific public health problem in a distinct cultural setting.
Students work closely with a committee of faculty members who provide advice on the design, implementation, and write up of the thesis. Students spend on average 6-8 months on their thesis, generally in their second year in the program.
