PUBH 5334: Foundations of Public Health
This graduate-level course is to familiarize students with the concepts and skills needed in community organization and community health practice. Students in this class will gain understanding and develop skills in the following areas: diagnosing health concerns, understanding the complexities of a community, developing community coalitions, empowering the community, problem solving and community health intervention strategies/approaches.

PUBH 5378: Administration and Leadership in Public Health
Integrates an introduction to leadership and administration in public health within the framework of current health policy. On a broad level, students examine health policy. On a more local level, students scrutinize leadership roles and functions within public health settings considering important aspects of organizational structure and governance; management and ethical decision making; finance and budgeting; human resource functions; and program evaluation and improvement. Students will examine funding opportunities and explore the relationships between many levels of public health entities. Students will also consider system modification practices in light of policy change.
PUBH 5379: Research Methods
Focuses on developmental theory, research design and methodology, gathering of data, statistical analysis and evaluation, and research reporting as they relate to human research. Conducting and interpreting research is a necessary skill that all students at the graduate level should learn. Whether continuing to the doctoral level and higher education, medical school, or continuing in public health, health education, health promotion or other disciplines, research and statistics can be used in everyday professional life.
STA 5300: Statistical Methodology
Graduate students will learn to apply descriptive and inferential methodologies commonly used to summarize data. Students will also learn how to interpret and communicate results of statistical analysis. Topics covered in this course include: basic statistical terminology, probability distributions, sampling distributions, tests of hypothesis including nonparametric procedures, ANOVA, regression, multiple regression including polynomial regression, categorical data, and communicating and documenting the results of analysis.
PUBH 5V70: Graduate Project
A 250-hour (minimum)* internship as an end-of-program MPH graduate project based on the proposal submitted by the conclusion of their immersion experience. The internship can be completed over the last 1-3 quarters/terms of the program. The purpose of this graduate project is to allow the student to engage in a culminating experience where students are able to apply knowledge gained in the classroom to a real-world setting, while continuing to gain practical experience and develop professional competencies in a public or community-based setting. Students will develop and submit an electronic portfolio of their documented work.
*If the minimum 250 hours are reached but the project is not complete (or not satisfactory), then the student must proceed past 250 hours in order to reach the point of approval per the site.'
PUBH 5329: Current Topics in Public Health

PUBH 5380: Determinants of Health and Health Equity
Provides an overview of health disparities and inequities in the U.S., based on the social determinants of health, and prepares students to be effective practitioners by approaching public health practice with a focus on equity and the root causes of health outcomes. Factors such as race/ethnicity, socioeconomic status, health communication, urban and rural contexts, the built environment, and cultural competency are also examined.
PUBH 5V94: Practicum
Students will gain practical experience and develop professional competencies in a public health setting. The practicum requires at least 200 contact hours and includes a clearly defined, goal-specific project outcome.
