Public Health Programs (CEPH)

In March 2022, CEPH reaffirmed UNC Charlotte’s accreditation as a public health program through July 1, 2029, the maximum possible term, following an intensive self-study and site visit. We are proud that our BSPH, MPH and PhD programs meet the rigorous criteria and professional standards which are critical to public health workforce development and our students’ success.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to all who contribute to the success of our program and help us to continuously improve. We are exceptionally fortunate to have so many people invested in aiding our students to achieve their full potential in the field of public health.
