Approach

Graduate Student Oath Ceremony 2013

Graduate Student Oath Ceremony 2013

We take an individualized, student-centered approach to learning to meet our students’ respective needs and interests. Students may attend the program on a full- or part-time basis. Courses are held in the late-afternoons and early-evenings to accommodate working students. Several required and elective courses can be completed at Penn State’s University Park, Harrisburg, Great Valley, or World (online) campuses.

 The program has been an amazing experience so far.  The staff and faculty are highly supportive and helpful.  They have made the program extremely welcoming and personable.  Although we have a specific curriculum to follow, the program in itself is customizable to each student’s needs….Enrolling into this MPH program has been one of the best decisions I have made.  – Amanda Reiff, MPH Student
