MPH students are supported by several professional faculty/administrators in addition to their faculty advisor.
Each term, the MPH Administrative Director holds MPH student meetings, which are drop-in sessions where we discuss important deadlines, required paperwork, including the program of study, and other topics. Students are encouraged to attend at least one meeting each year. Meetings are streamed so students can attend remotely.

MPH students must complete their program of study by the first week of their second to last term in the program. After a program of study has been approved by the Graduate School, the student can modify their program of study at any time. The Graduate School will soon require all OSU graduate students to use the digital program of study platform to complete their program of study, which can be found on the Grad School’s forms page.
The H510 MPH Internship is a 6-credit course that is required for every MPH student.
Each year, the MPH program holds an MPH Internship Panel with current students who have completed their internship.

The Integrative Learning Experience (ILE) is a requirement of all MPH students who started the program in 2019-2020, and for some who started the program in 2018-2019. The 2019-2020 ILE Guide includes a detailed description of each option’s ILE, the foundational MPH competencies, each options’ competencies, the ILE Assessment Form, and the MPH Summative Assessment Form.

You may find that a minor or certificate program would be beneficial for your career goals. It is possible, depending on the minor or certificate, that the courses could also be used to satisfy your MPH elective requirement. Faculty advisors approve elective courses, so talk with your advisor about this possibility.
