Accreditation

Proudly accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH)

The Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) is an independent agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education to accredit schools of public health and public health programs outside of schools of public health. CEPH accreditation is nationally recognized as the quality standard of education and training in public health, awarded only to programs that meet lengthy, rigorous criteria, including intensive peer review to evaluate operating policies and practices.

CEPH Accredited Master's

CEPH accreditation assures the quality of UVM’s Master of Public Health (MPH) Program to achieve excellence in practice, research, and service through collaboration with organizational and community partners.

Leading the way: Vermont’s only CEPH-accredited program

We are proud that our MPH Program is the only CEPH-accredited public health program in Vermont. Students who are considering joining our program can be confident that UVM’s Master of Public Health Program received full five-year accreditation from the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) in March 2021. As a generalist program, students are empowered to study all aspects of public health, equipping them with an interdisciplinary education that prepares them to contribute to diverse fields.

Accreditation by the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE)

The UVM Master of Public Health Program and Certificates of Graduate Study have been accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE) since their launch. CEPH accreditation is further recognition of the MPH program’s excellence.

What Accreditation Means to UVM Students

The CEPH and NECHE Accreditation guarantees that UVM’s program teaches students how to achieve excellence in practice, research, and service through collaboration with over 35 organization and community partners.

“The MPH program gives students the opportunity to explore subjects they are passionate about with an intricate network of support from mentors, professors, and colleagues.  Not only was I encouraged to focus on my interests alongside a strong foundation of diverse courses, but I was able to “test drive” my education prior to graduation with a career-based internship at a local health organization. This opportunity proved invaluable in preparing me for a lifelong career in public health.”
