Masters in Public Health Accreditation

The faculty of the Masters in Public Health Program at Montclair State University is pursuing accreditation through the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH).

The mission of our program is to prepare culturally competent professionals in public health, with a strong focus on social justice, consistent with the missions of the University, College, and the Graduate School.  This interdisciplinary academic and experiential program trains public health practitioners with professional skills for planning, implementing, evaluating, and sustaining efforts to enhance population health and eliminate health disparities.  The program seeks to advance the goals of Healthy People 2020 and the National Prevention Strategy; and to contribute to a diverse public health workforce by developing and nurturing a student body that represents multiple cultural, educational and professional backgrounds. Graduates of the program are prepared for careers as practitioners and leaders in a diverse array of public health settings, such as local and state government, public and private health agencies, voluntary and community based organizations, schools, health care institutions, and policy and advocacy organizations.

The accreditation review is scheduled for November 6-7, 2014.  If you have any comments or concerns regarding our program, the council is accepting comments until October 6, 2014.  Any comments that you have can be submitted directly to CEPH at 1010 Wayne Avenue, Suite 220 Silver Spring, MD 20910 or Brittany Lilly at
