Dual Degree: Master of Public Policy & Administration and Master of Public Health
The MPPA/MPH program equips students with the skills needed to conduct effective health policy analysis; understand organizational processes within the health sector; develop policy-based approaches to address issues of public health importance; and translate complex public health policies for a lay audience.
Students enrolled in dual degree programs may begin their studies in either program. It is best to complete a full year in one program before beginning the second program. In the second year students will fulfill the core requirements of the other program. During the third year of study students fulfill the remaining requirements of both programs.
In addition to the course requirements, CPPA requires students to complete a full-time 10-week internship with a public policy or management focus and MPH students are required to complete a practicum experience. With the approval of both programs, dual degree students are able to complete their internship and practicum experiences simultaneously.
