We offer a range of practical learning experiences that advance our students' public health research and engagement skills during their time at Dornsife.
Practicing public health while in school is an invaluable experience that often clarifies a student's next steps in their career. These experiences include the following:
Applied Practical Experiences
Graduate students in the Master of Public Health (MPH) program complete a practicum at an organization of their choice, gaining approximately 120-hours of real-world experience.

Integrative Learning Experience
MPH students complete an Integrative Learning Experience (ILE) throughout their second year. A student's ILE can be an internship or a data analysis project (working closely with their faculty mentor) or a capstone course (working with their course instructor).
