The MPH Program Office will work to empower students to identify their strengths, interests, and values; discover and explore possibilities; gain experience; and develop strategies for pursuing diverse career paths and making mindful career decisions.
We will offer an array of career-development activities to help inspire you to gain confidence and establish a foundation upon which to build your careers over a lifetime.
Your assigned academic advisor and MPH staff members want to help you learn about your skills and interests, and articulate them confidently in resumes, cover letters, interviews, and personal statements; identify and explore career options that you might pursue; and implement an effective strategy to attain your desired career outcomes. The MPH office will regularly share career building workshops and events with you to help further develop you career goals and strategies.
