Bronx, NY, April 27, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- The new Master of Public Health (MPH) program being introduced this fall by the Monroe College King Graduate School is designed for students interested in pursuing careers in public health and for those who want to enhance their existing public health careers. Graduates will be in position to have a positive impact on the health outlook for individuals and communities.
“Public health problems involve complex and interrelated social, behavioral, legal, medical, and economic issues,” said Dr. Jerry Kostroff, Dean of the School of allied Health Professions, “and graduates from the Master’s program will be intimately involved in developing and implementing interventions designed to improve overall health.”
The 45-credit MPH program will present a wide range of exciting career opportunities in government agencies, academia, health care institutions, public health interest groups, and non-profit organizations. Students will choose one of the concentrations in either Community Health or Health Administration and Leadership. Both are driven by a curriculum that provides extensive knowledge and skills needed to conduct essential public health services.
“The first semesters will involve traditional public health coursework,” said Dr. Kostroff, “while the last semesters will be devoted to a practice-based internship and a thesis paper based on an outcome-oriented project. The combination of classroom and fieldwork is a proven road to a successful career.”
“A graduate degree in public health will multiply your career opportunities,” said Dr. Michael Marinaccio, Dean of the King Graduate School, “and you'll be in a position to make vital health policy decisions that affect countless lives.”
