Foundational Curriculum

SPHTM Foundational Curriculum Overview

Starting in Fall 2018, SPHTM will offer five new foundational courses that will replace the five former disciplinary core courses required by the professional graduate degree programs (MPH, MSPH, and MPH&TM). 

The Foundational Curriculum (15 credits) addresses the knowledge and competencies defined by CEPH in the 2016 accreditation criteria for professional degrees in public health. Students complete the Foundational Curriculum in the first year of their degree program.

Students matriculating to the professional degree programs (MPH, MSPH*, MPH&TM) in Fall 2018 and thereafter will be required to take the foundational courses. Students who entered prior to Fall 2018 will remain under the previous disciplinary core requirements. See transition below.

*The MSPH in Tropical Medicine is an academic degree that does not require the Foundational Curriculum.

Students matriculating Fall 2018 and thereafter: 

All SPHTM degree programs now require SPHL 6020 Foundations in Public Health. This course provides an overview and grounding in public health per CEPH D1 competencies.

All professional master’s-level degree programs (MPH, MSPH, and MPH&TM) require the five foundational courses: SPHL 6020 (D1) and the other four foundational courses that provide the CEPH D2 competencies

These five courses (15 credits) make up the foundational curriculum:

SPHL 6020 Foundations in Public Health (3)
SPHL 6050 Biostatistics for Public Health (3)
SPHL 6060 Epidemiology for Public Health (3)
SPHL 6070 Health Systems, Policy and Management (3)
SPHL 6080 Design Strategies for Public Health Programs (3)

The DrPH program now requires foundational courses at the doctoral level. 

What is the Foundational Curriculum?

The new Foundational Curriculum takes a different approach from the previous Core Curriculum, which focused on the five disciplinary areas of public health. The Foundational Curriculum provides cross-cutting knowledge and skills relevant to public health practice. Disciplinary study is provided in the programmatic courses, practicum, and Integrated Learning Experience (ILE).

The Foundational Curriculum is a series of five integrated courses that provide fundamental knowledge and skills for all public health disciplines. The Foundational Curriculum is coordinated and designed to be rigorous, engaging, and collaborative. The framework of the curriculum allows students to apply the knowledge and skills to their areas of professional public health practice.

The foundational courses differ from the prior core courses in that they:

  • Are school-wide courses rather than department-based.
  • Are integrated and interdisciplinary.
  • Emphasize application in professional practice.
  • Feature collaborative learning methods to simulate professional practice.
  • Contain interactive assignments linked to foundational competencies.
  • Offer assignments for students to apply concepts and approaches to their own fields of study.
Transition to the Foundational Curriculum

Transition from Disciplinary Core Courses to Foundational Curriculum Courses 

Students who entered a professional graduate degree program at SPHTM prior to fall 2018 were encouraged to meet the core curriculum requirement in their first year of study. Some students may not have completed these courses as recommended. Students in this situation or who have questions about fulfilling core requirements should consult their advisors. Advisors will ensure students complete the equivalent of either the disciplinary core or the Foundational Curriculum. 

While the prior core and new foundational courses are not the same, for purposes of fulling degree requirements, the options below will fulfill core graduation requirements for students who matriculated prior to Fall 2018.

For students who entered prior to fall 2018 and need to complete core requirements:

Core course requirement  Option for fulfilling core requirement
BIOS 6030 Introduction to Biostatistics (3) SPHL 6050 Biostatistics for Public Health (3)
EPID 6030 Epidemiologic Methods 1 (3)  SPHL 6060 Epidemiology for Public Health (3)
GCHB 6030 Social and Behavioral Aspects (3) GCHB 6030 Social and Behavioral Aspects (3) OR
SPHL 6080 Design Strategies for Public Health Planning (3)
GEHS 6030 Survey of Environmental Health (3) GEHS 6030 Survey of Environmental Health (3)
GHSD 6030 Health Systems, Management and Policy (3) SPHL 6070 Health Systems, Policy and Management (3)
SPHL 6020 Foundations in Public Health (3)

SPHL 6020 is one of five interdisciplinary courses that contribute to the foundational competencies required of graduates with professional degrees in public health. SPHL 6020 is composed of a series of online lessons that provide an overview of public health principles, concepts, and evidence-based approaches to global public health and the biological, environmental, behavioral, socioeconomic, and political determinants of health. Students will integrate these influences through case study and scenario analyses. SPHL 6020 is a requirement for all graduate students pursuing any degree in the School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine.

SPHL 6020 – Foundations of Public Health will be taught in a blended learning format. The course is divided into five segments that cover: Introduction to Public Health; Biological Determinants of Health; Social and Behavioral Determinants of Health; Environmental Determinants of Health; and, Public Health Issues. Instead of traditional in-class lectures, students listen to a series of online lessons with a short knowledge check after each. Students attend an in-class session at the end of each segment to discuss the topic and analyze a scenario applying the topics covered.
