MPH, Health Services Administration
"Everyone involved with MEZCOPH is proud to represent the college. Personally, the biggest reason I recommend MEZCOPH is the dedication the college (employers, students, professors, etc) has to helping their students. Everyone wants all students to succeed and will do all they can to assist with that."
Phoenix, AZPrior Degree(s):
I attended the University of Arizona for my B.S in public health.Before entering the program:
I worked full time at a behavioral health clinic prior to entering my MPH program.Why did you choose public health?
Originally, I chose public health because it was a broad subject that allowed various opportunities in the workforce. However, as I became more involved with the courses, I learned that public health was one of the most important things in our society. In our everyday lives we utilize things that have been brought upon by public health and I am a believer that this field will continue to grow and impact lives positively.Why did you choose MEZCOPH?
As an undergraduate I felt at home with the MEZCOPH community, and upon searching for a graduate program I felt I could accomplish more in my academics and professional life returning to MEZCOPH.Public health interests:
