Since its founding and accreditation, our program's essential mission has been: "To provide professional education, encompassing a wide range of theoretical approaches and practical methodologies, that prepares and supports both students and graduates with the knowledge and confidence to apply their health education skills to program, policy, and community development." In recognition of the growing diversity of the state of California, our program has become increasingly committed to training culturally competent health educators whose backgrounds and skills reflect our changing demography.
San Jose State University's MPH Program in Community Health Education is accredited by The Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH), the independent agency officially recognized to accredit graduate programs in public health. CEPH accredits both Schools of Public Health, Preventive Medicine Programs, and freestanding programs in Community Health Education. Despite the fiscal challenges of late 20th century higher education, the MPH program continues to thrive. This is due, in large part, to the strong sense of purpose established by the founding faculty, a dedicated core of current MPH faculty and part-time instructors, enthusiastic and always engaging students, and deep bonds with a wide range of community programs and organizations.
