Field Work (Minimum 2 Credit Semester)
A minimum of two semester credits of field experience in public health (Field Work) is required for all students in the MPH degree program. Students must spend at least 120 hours on site during the field work to meet the field work that fits with her/his career goals and is consistent with the area of concentration. An on-site preceptor supervises the studentís experience, and the faculty advisor collaborates in designing and approving the learning content. The majority of students complete this requirement during the semester-break following the first academic year, though some may choose to delay it until later in their second year.
Students should be active participants in the arrangements for a practice placement. The Office of Academic Support Programs assists students in locating appropriate field work sites and provides support throughout the experience. Students are encouraged to consult with their advisors and other The Department faculty. The Field Work is graded as 2 credits. The evaluation is based on the preceptorís and advisorís assessment of the experience and the final report. Complete details on the process for seeking and confirming the placement, as well as the expectations for the field work, are found in the field work Student Handbook (http://mkia-kr.ugm.ac.id)
Culminating Thesis Project and Masterís ExaminationKUI: 800. (8 Credits)Thesis The Post Graduate Program of Public Health requires that each masterís student complete a Masterís Examination. The culminating thesis project for the MPH satisfies this requirement. MPH students concentrating in Maternal and Child Health-Reproductive Health (MCH-RH) have the option of completing a traditional research-based masterís thesis project or other forms of thesis project listed in the Post Graduate Program of Public Health thesis guideline, for example case study and projection or modeling, The latest thesis option is less frequently chosen because the majority of students intend to go directly into professional practice. However, those students who expect to pursue an academic degree program such as the PhD are encouraged to consider a traditional research-based masterís thesis and there are, of course, students who are interested in a topic that is best approached in the thesis format. More detailed descriptions of the thesis requirements are available in the MPH thesis guidelines available online at: http://ph-gmu.org or http://mkia-kr-ugm.ac.id.
Non-Credit Courses or Deficiencies

- Ethics in Public Health
- Public Health Biology
- Basic Computing and e-Learning,
- Reading and Critical Appraisal, and

ACADEMIC STANDARDSTo remain in good academic standing, MPH students must maintain a minimum 3.0 overall GPA. In addition, a B- or higher must be earned in the concentration courses and the core courses (with the exception of a Cor C+ in one core course). In some courses, students are allowed to mark-up their examination with agreement from the Course Coordinator. No course in which a grade of C- or below is earned may count toward the degree. For more details, MPH Student Handbook.
TIME LIMIT OF STUDY PERIODThe MPH degree must be completed within four (4) years from the date of registered. The responsibility for academic progress and fulfillment of the time limit rule rests with each student. Assigned faculty advisors will only help to students to accomplish their goals. Students who fail to complete the program in four years must re-apply to the program by written petition to the Post Graduate Studies Committee. Approval may be contingent upon completion of additional course work. No further registration will be permitted in the absence of an approved petition. For additional information, MPH Student Handbook available at http://ph-gmu.org.
GRADUATE NON-DEGREE & TRANSFER CREDITThe transfer of credit depends on where it was earned. For GMU graduate non-degree credits, a maximum of seven semester credits may be transferred into the degree-granting program with approval of the faculty advisor. For transfer credit from another institution, a maximum of nine semester credits (20% of the total credit hours required for the degree) may be transferred into the program with approval of the faculty advisor and the Chair of MPH Post Graduate Studies.
GRADUATION REQUIREMENTSStudents must be enrolled for a minimum of 8 graduate credit hours during the semester on term of graduation. An "Application to Graduate" form (available on the Graduate Schoolís University site) must be completed by the student, signed by the dean of the faculty of medicine, and returned to the Office of Academic Study Programs and Student Services for processing. The deadline for submitting the signed form to this office is 30 days prior to the graduation day. Prior to graduation, students are asked to complete an A Survey form, as explained in the MPH Student Handbook.
OFFICE OF ACADEMIC PROGRAMS AND STUDENT SERVICESStaffs of the Academic Support and Computing Center (ASCC) are available to provide assistance regarding technical and academic procedures. Questions regarding the studentís program should be directed to the faculty advisor or instructor.
