Track: 4+1

Kanza Zafar

Tell us about yourself:

I am currently finishing up my double major in psychology and human development and family studies: human services. I am doing research with Professor Posada looking at parent-child attachment in HDFS and involved in the Public Health Student Association. The PHSA has helped me get to know many students and faculty in the MPH program and provided me with many opportunities for volunteer work.

Your vision:

I always knew I wanted to continue my education after getting my bachelor’s degrees and public health degree, which aligned well with my undergraduate majors of psychology and human development and family studies. Public health would also provide me the opportunity to pursue my passion for helping people on a more global level by pursuing the family and community concentration and becoming an international public health educator. 

Why the accelerated MPH option: 

I choose the 4+1 program track because it would give me flexibility as well as choice in a variety of classes in public health. The 4+1 program would also allow me to finish early so that I could get involved in making changes as a public health professional. WIth my background in human services and interest in creating programs and policies to help populations in global and international health, the professional degree in MPH at Purdue was a good fit for me.

Your course load:

The course load for the first year in 4+1 track is limited to 12 credits, so I believe that it is not too difficult. Having a plan of study on possible classes can be very beneficial to understand the layout of caspases, especially for the final year of MPH.
