  1. The 2 YearHealth BehaviorMasters Program For those entering in 2012 and beyond

  2. Departmental Office Kristen Pickett 342 Bowman

  3. General There is only some flexibility in this program. Generally, the best practice is to follow this recommended program. Departing from this plan puts you at risk of extending your program past 2 years.

  4. Core Courses – Outside HB You need all four of these – please take them when you can: • CPH 601: Occupational/Environmental Health 1 • CPH 605: Epidemiology • CPH 650: Management of Public Health Organizations • STA: 580: Biostatistics

  5. Fall, Year One CPH 604: Public Health & Disease Prevention Dr. Vanderpool CPH 663 Public Health Practice & Administration Dr. Vanderpool

  6. Spring, Year One CPH 643: Measuring Health Behavior Dr. Jones

  7. Spring, Year One Pick one of the following HB selectives • CPH 644: Rural Health Disparities Dr. Vanderpool Or… • CPH 646: Most sections Or… • CPH 641: Public Health and Anthropology Dr. Swanson Or… • CPH 645: Food Systems, Malnutrition & Public Health Dr. Swanson **NOTE: CPH 641 and CPH 645 are offered in alternating years**

  11. Spring, Year Two CPH 608: Capstone – Health Behavior section Dr. Eddens CPH 648: Eliminating Racial and Ethnic Health Disparities Dr. Alexander

  12. This is the right pace

  13. This is perhaps not the right pace

  14. Good to run with others

  15. But, keep the group on pace

  16. Two years from now – stand proud!

  17. Finished? If you follow this plan you will have 42 credit hours: • 24 hours in Health Behavior • 15 hours of core courses in other CPH departments • 3 hours for summer practicum

  18. Finished? There is one more thing you need to do: The graduate school requires that you take a final exam. You will do this as part of Research Methods II/Capstone (Dr. Eddens). A faculty committee will evaluate your final product of the two research methods courses. This evaluation will last one hour and it is your final exam for the entire degree. The exam will occur during the second and third weeks of April. Your course grade for Research Methods II/Capstone is independent from this final exam.

  19. Finished? Once you have completed the 42 hours and the required final exam (given during Research Methods II/Capstone) you are eligible to graduate. We do, however, encourage you to take other courses that may help you gain “an edge” over the competition when you interview for jobs.

  20. After Graduation – Now What?
