The Office of Public Health Studies (OPHS) is accredited as a public health program by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH), an independent agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education to accredit schools and programs of public health.  

Our last CEPH site visit was held in September 2014, and the program received full accreditation through July 1, 2023. For accreditation by CEPH, programs are required to conduct a self-study and submit a report that addresses all qualifying criteria.

Our public health program will be having an on-site re-accreditation review by CEPH on March 30-31, 2023. To request a copy of the preliminary self study submitted to CEPH in October 2022, please contact our department at
