MSPH with a Concentration in Maternal & Child Health
The MSPH with a concentration in Maternal and Child Health prepares students for careers oriented toward needs assessment, research and evaluation activities that address the major public health problems of women, children and families, especially those from culturally diverse or underserved populations. Graduates are prepared for employment in academic, clinical and other research areas. Each area of specialization and corresponding program of study is developed on an individual basis, guided by the student's interests and areas of expertise in the curriculum. A supervisory committee of three faculty members assists the student in planning appropriate coursework and directing the thesis. This program of study may be especially relevant to students whose future plans include a doctoral degree.
