When deciding to earn your Master in Public Health (MPH) degree, it is important to choose a program accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH), a nationally recognized and respected accrediting body for schools and programs of public health.  This is not just a stamp of approval, but a signal to employers and other institutions that our MPH Program meets industry-accepted standards.

The MPH Program at Purdue University is fully accredited by CEPH. This means that we abide by the criteria and expectations set forth by CEPH and ensure that our Program meets certain standards and benchmarks for educational quality, qualified faculty, and adequate resources.

What does CEPH Accreditation mention?

CEPH accreditation signifies a commitment to high-quality education in public health, ensuring a curriculum that equips students with essential knowledge and skills. Graduating from such a program enhances employability, as many employers prefer CEPH-accredited degrees, and it opens doors to certifications and funding opportunities.

What Makes an MPH program CEPH Accredited?

CEPH thoroughly reviews our Program to ensure all operational aspects, including educational resources, faculty qualifications, and student services, meet CEPH’s accreditation standards. Our curriculum is peer-reviewed by external evaluators, so you can be confident that the knowledge and essential skills needed in the workforce are covered in our courses. More than 90% of our graduates are employed or enrolled in further education approximately one-year post-graduation.  Graduates from our program have gone on to work at state and local health departments, community hospitals, and non-profit organizations, to name a few.

Accreditation guarantees that our MPH Program remains committed to quality and continuous improvement, which ultimately helps you prepare to enter your chosen profession. Certain fellowship and employment opportunities, such as working for the US Public Health Service and some government agencies, are only open to students who have graduated from CEPH-accredited programs. CEPH accreditation can facilitate obtaining public health certifications and licensures, such as the Certified in Public Health (CPH) credential, administered by the National Board of Public Health Examiners (NBPHE).
