Public Health

Public Health is one of the most dynamic, expanding, interconnected professions in the world. Public health professionals work to address the underlying causes of health disparities such as social, environmental, and behavioral determinants of health. Public health professionals make a difference in the health of individuals and families in their local communities by focusing on health promotion and disease prevention. Public health is a rewarding career that offers opportunities for travel and working in communities and with governments around the world through science, education, program management, and leadership. There is a shortage of trained public health workers, which means that graduates find jobs that match their interest and educational experience upon graduation in a wide-range of job settings.

Hawai‘i Pacific University Department of Public Health is an applicant for accreditation by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH). The accreditation review will address the BSPH generalist degree and MPH generalist degree. Other degrees and areas of study offered by this institution will not be included in the unit of accreditation review. 

A CEPH accrediation review is currently scheduled and CEPH is accepting written comments from any stakeholders until 30 days before the site visit. Comments can be submitted until January 9, 2019. Any comments can be sent directly to CEPH:
