BYU Public Health Programs Earn CEPH Accreditation

CEPH Accreditation

October 20, 2016

On October 13, 2016 the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) awarded the BYU Masters of Public Health (MPH) program and the BYU Public Health Bachelor of Science (BS) program CEPH accreditation. Though the MPH program was originally accredited in 2005, this year marks the first time in department history the bachelor’s program has been CEPH accredited as well.

Department Chair Dr. Carl Hanson is excited that the undergraduate program of public health now joins the master’s program in CEPH accreditation. “We have our faculty to thank for that,” said Dr. Hanson. “Our faculty worked hard to put together a great self-study for both the undergraduate and graduate program that helped earn CEPH accreditation for seven years.”

The self-study is a comprehensive review of the BYU program against nationally established standards of quality. “This accreditation is a measure of quality and excellence,” said Dr. Hanson. “It’s really is a ‘gold star’ for our programs and represents our commitment to helping best prepare students for success in public health.”Download Self-StudyDownload CEPH Report
