Fieldwork Placements

MPH students have the opportunity to gain real world practice in some of the Bay Area’s best public health agencies. In place of a research-based thesis, our students produce an original graduate project based on the culmination of their classroom learning, a 300-hour fieldwork internship, and a capstone synthesis that demonstrates mastery of the profession.
