North Dakota State University’s Master of Public Health Program had its first two graduates fall 2013. One of the graduates, Erin Loeb, has already found a position with her degree.
Erin starts this month at the Custer Health District in Mandan as a Public Health Coordinator. Her focus during the MPH program was the Management of Infectious Diseases.
Students in the NDSU MPH program can choose from one of the four areas of specialization including:
- American Indian Public Health
- Health Promotion
- Community Health Sciences
- Management of Infectious Diseases
NDSU’s MPH program was approved in 2010, with its first classes starting fall 2012. The program was created to train professionals to better address North Dakota’s unique health care challenges, due to being a largely rural state, and those of the Northern Great Plains.
