The Student Handbook for the Department of Public Health Sciences provides information about program objectives, degree requirements and departmental procedures. Students are subject to the requirements and policies outlined in the handbook based on their year of matriculation. If a currently enrolled student elects to fulfill revised degree program requirements, the student must obtain approval from the graduate chair who, in turn, will need to notify the Graduate Division Student Services Office via memo.
