The MPH@Baylor program prepares learners for real-world public health service by offering opportunities to engage in community service and research.
Immersion: Learners attend a weekend-long, on-campus immersion experience, during which they network with faculty and classmates, hear from keynote speakers, visit local family health centers, and begin work on their graduate projects.
Practicum (optional): Learners can complete a 200-hour practicum in their community, and have the opportunity to apply classroom learnings directly in the field. This experience counts as a 3-credit elective course.
Graduate project: Near the end of the program, learners complete a 250-hour internship with a local organization as a culminating graduate project. The goal of the graduate project is to apply competencies and knowledge gained during online classes to a real-world scenario in a public or community-based setting.
