As a student of the Master of Public Health Program at Penn State, I have the opportunity to work directly with faculty and staff. Due to the small class sizes, professors quickly learn your specific areas of interest in public health and are able to engage you in research that they are conducting. You gain first-hand experience in public health while you are earning your degree. – Bobbie Johannes, MPH Student, Co-President of Public Health Association for Service and Education (PHASE)
