Diversity and Inclusion: The MPH Program holds a diversity luncheon and focus group for students, and surveys faculty concerning their diversity experiences.  The attached reports summarizes our most recent efforts.

Supervisory Committee: Within the first year of study, it is the student's responsibility to work with his/her advisor in the formation of his/her supervisory committee members. The supervisory committee will consist of a major professor from the student's MPH area of emphasis and at least two other Kansas State University MPH graduate faculty.  This committee will advise and approve the student's program of study, supervise the student's progress, and conduct the final examination.  With pre-approval of the MPH Program Director, in unique circumstances, a graduate faculty member who is not part of the MPH graduate faculty may serve on the supervisory committee. 

Program of Study: Every student in the MPH Program who intends to earn a degree must file a Program of Study (POS), signed by members of his/her supervisory committee and the MPH Program Director. The POS should consist solely of courses directly related to the MPH degree. Full-time students should file their POS before the end of their second semester of graduate study, and part-time student should do so upon completion of 9 semester credit hours in the semester. This form must be filled out electronically. To do so select Electronic Form Submission on on The Graduate School's form page.

To make preparing your POS easier, we have entered MPH specific information in this PDF file for your use. Electronic MPH Program of Study instructions

Culminating Experience: All MPH degree candidates are required to complete a culminating experience, with a choice related to (1) the applied practice experience (APE) and an integrated learning experience (ILE) report; or (2) public health thesis research (the thesis becomes the ILE) and the APE.

Applied Practice Experience (APE):  All MPH degree candidates are required to complete a public health APE, related to the choice of culminating experience.  See Applied Practice Experience.

Note: Your Program of Study needs to be completed, signed by your committee and the MPH director, and approved by the Graduate School BEFORE your APE Form will be processed by the MPH office.

Degree Completion Requirements and Graduation

MPH instructions for Approval to Schedule Final Exam

NOTE: You must be enrolled in at least 1 credit hour of course work the semester you graduate. This is a Graduate School requirement and cannot be waived (see Graduate Handbook, 1-4, Section D).

Library Tools and Services:  There are many resources available through the library system.  See the Hale Library Page for MPH Students.
