C.E.P.H. Applicant Status
Walden University applied to the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) for accreditation of its Master of Public Health (MPH) program on September 20, 2014. The accreditation review will address only the MPH program; other degree programs and areas of study offered by this institution will not be included in the unit of accreditation review. For more information on the accreditation process, please visit the CEPH website.
Note on Certification
The National Board of Public Health Examiners (NBPHE) offers the Certified in Public Health (CPH) credential as a voluntary core credential for public health professionals. However, in order to sit for the CPH exam, a student must have graduated from a Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) accredited school or program of public health. While Walden’s MPH program is an applicant for CEPH accreditation, the program is not yet accredited and Walden MPH graduates may not currently sit for the CPH exam. Students should evaluate all requirements related to national credentialing agencies and exams for the state in which he or she intends to practice. Walden makes no representations or guarantees that completion of Walden coursework or programs will permit an individual to obtain national certification. For more information about the CPH credential, students should visit www.nchec.org.
Please note that this program is not 100% online and there is a practicum component.
