Characteristics of Field Experience include the following:

  • Carefully planned, supervised and evaluated in order to earn academic credit
  • Contains measurable goals and concrete learning objectives which directly relate to MPH Competencies, a student’s concentration and personal career goals
  • Helps to develop a student's academic, professional and personal development
