The Program in Public Health (PPH) is regionally accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (CHE MSA) as a component of SUNY Stony Brook University.

The PPH offers two nationally accredited degree programs: the Master of Public Health (MPH) and the Master of Health Administration (MHA).

Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH)

The MPH has maintained accreditation from the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) since 2008.  Between 2020 and 2021, the PPH conducted a thorough self-study process whereby we engaged students, staff, faculty, and community stakeholders in an assessment of our program. We had a successful site visit in April 2021. The CEPH Board of Councilors acted at its November 18-19, 2021 meeting to accredit the Program in Public Health at Stony Brook University for a seven-year term. The accreditation term extends until December 31, 2028, pending our continued documentation of compliance through annual reporting and any other reporting required by the Council.
