MPH Applied Learning Experience

The ALE is a practice experience, undertaken in the final two semesters of the program which offers students an opportunity to integrate and apply public health knowledge and skills gained in the classroom to a real world public health problem. This experience gives students a body of work that can be used in seeking employment upon graduation and serves as a way for faculty to evaluate students’ readiness for public health practice. Finally, it is an opportunity for students to provide service to the community.
