PCC ID: 14045
Name: PCC Proposal to Establish an Area of Concentration in Health Policy Analysis and Evaluation for the Master of Public Health
Proposed: 03/23/2015
Sponsor: PCC Committee
Proposal: Central to the mission and values of the University of Maryland, College Park, School of Public Health (UMD-SPH) is the development of highly qualified professionals who are prepared to be leaders and to develop new areas of expertise in the field of health policy analysis and evaluation. There is growing national demand for professionals who understand and are able to analyze and evaluate health policies and the impact of health policies on the health of the population in the state, the nation, and worldwide, and can leverage this knowledge to combat major public health and health services issues facing today's society. To address this demand, the UMD-SPH proposes to add an Area of Concentration in Health Policy Analysis and Evaluation to its existing Master of Public Health (MPH). This concentration will leverage a unique strength of UMD-SPH, through its expertise in HLSA. To our knowledge, this will be a unique offering within the State of Maryland. This 43 credits Concentration, which includes the five required MPH core courses, a required internship, a required capstone course, and cognate courses (7 elective courses and 1 required seminar), will train individuals to focus practice and/or research activities on the analysis and evaluation of heath policies.
