UT Public Health Program Wins 5-Year Accreditation

Knoxville – The University of Tennessee Master of Public Health (MPH) degree program has been re-accredited for another five years.

The Council on Education for Public Health recently notified the university that it would renew UT-s full accreditation through 2005.

-The five-year term of accreditation offers highly positive reinforcement to the students, faculty, alumni and community members who prepared for the review,- Hamilton said.

The public health faculty did a two-year self-study of the program and a three-person site visit team reviewed the study and filed a written report on it, he said. There are 67 fully accredited MPH programs in the nation.
