Students in the Master of Public Health Profgram at San Francisco State University are required to prepare an electronic portfolio that includes evidence from academic classes, practice courses, and their culminating experience project demonstrating their competence in the core functions of Public Health as they pertain to Community Health Education.

The content provided in the first four competences included in this page illustrate evidence of proficiency in the core courses of San Francisco State University's Master of Public Health Program.  These competencies are based upon standards established by the Society for Public Health Education (SOPHE), the American Association for Health Education (AAHE), and the Association of Schools of Public Health (ASPH).

Diversity and Culture has been added by the Health Education Department at San Francisco State University to demonstrate multicultural competence.
