Public Health (M.P.H.)
The MPH curriculum requires 48 credits, including 11 classes (33 credits) of required coursework that is established to fulfill the competencies required for the CEPH accreditation and five electives (15 credits). Included in the MPH curriculum is a 100-hour field experience in which the student is expected to apply the theory and the practice to a particular area of interest in a professional public health setting. The final course in the curriculum is an integrating seminar in which students work in teams, bringing both their individual and joint perspectives, as well as their expertise to address a specific public health problem for a New Hampshire-based public health entity.
For the purposes of determining academic standing, grades below the “B-” level in graded courses are considered failing grades. The MPH program director will recommend dismissal of a student to the Graduate School when a failing grade occurs in six or more credits, either in two courses or in one course taken twice. Repeating a course does not remove the original failing grade from the record. Students must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 (B), or higher, in order to graduate. Students admitted on a conditional or provisional basis must meet the conditions or provisions as stated in the letter of admission in order to remain in the Graduate School.
