MPH Curriculum

We offer a 5 course modules for classes in public health communication for MPH students and graduate students in health sciences.  The intent is that one or several of these communication modules may be inserted into any core MPH class.  The instructor in Introduction to Environmental Science might wish to adopt the module on “How to Conduct a Community Meeting, just as the instructor in Fundamentals of Health Planning and Policy might wish to include in that class “How to Write a News Release” and “The Art of Being Interviewed by the Media.”  (At the same time, all five modules taken together could form the nucleus of an MPH class in Techniques for Public Information in Public Health.)

These MPH course modules have been developed based on needs assessments and address students’ needs for more practical training in communication skills, interviewing, media relations, report writing, team building, and community interaction.   These modules are vehicles for infusing curriculum with materials pertaining to communication and marketing, with the ultimate aim to reduce health disparities through more effective health communication.
