SDSU & USD collaborate for MPH program

SDSU and USD have requested approval of a Master of Public Health (MPH) degree program from the South Dakota Board of Regents. The universities will collaborate to deliver the curriculum that is designed to educate students in the core competencies of public health practice and prepare them with the knowledge and skills necessary to assume a variety of positions.  Distance delivery (online, DDN, etc.) will be used for most of the program using lecture formats and asynchronous presentations.  Those interested in learning more about the MPH program can contact the Graduate School at SDSU or the School of Health Sciences at USD.  The current goal is to begin offering program courses this Fall 2014.
