MPH students are required to complete 9 credits of internships, for a total of 720 hours. You must complete one year of coursework before beginning an internship.

Internships can be staggered in 6 credits (Summer) + 3 credits (Spring or Fall) OR 3 credits (Summer) + 3 credits (Fall) + 3 credits (Spring). Six of those credits must be completed in your chosen concentration. In addition, all nine credits cannot be completed with the same mentor or on the same project. You must register for your internship during the semester you are completing it in. Otherwise, you will not receive credit.

Means of Communication

The Internships and Career Services Listserv is sent out every Tuesday to all registered students and alumni. The Listserv provides information about full time and part time jobs, internships, fellowships, and many more career opportunities. This is the official means of communication for all information and deadlines pertaining to the internship program.

The Internship webpage contains all internship postings, the MPH Internship Handbook, internship forms, and internship waiver information.
