The University of Arizona Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health celebrated the first graduating class of the Online Master of Public Health program.
The University of Arizona Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health awarded diplomas to 146 of its fall 2017 graduates. Convocation ceremonies were held in Tucson on Dec. 15. Family and friends gathered in Crowder Hall to celebrate the accomplishments of those receiving master’s, doctoral, and bachelor’s degrees.
Milestone moments for the college and the Online Master of Public Health (MPH) Program were celebrated. The first 52 students who earned their MPH degrees through the online program graduated. Thirty-five of these students participated in the graduate convocation ceremony.
Joining their fellow online MPH students, were 19 on campus MPH graduates, and nine doctoral graduates.
During the undergraduate convocation ceremony, Kennedy Slowtalker, a member of the Navajo tribe, was surprised to learn that she is the 1,000th student to graduate from the Bachelor of Science (BS) in Public Health undergraduate program. Kennedy was one of 66 undergraduate students who received their BS degrees.
On behalf of all of us who comprise the Zuckerman College of Public Health “family,” congratulations to the December graduating Class of 2017.
