Hello my name is Katrina Khamis and I recently graduated from California State University, Fullerton with a Bachelor of Science in Health Science. Throughout my academic journal here at the University of Southern California I hope to expand my knowledge of Public Health and interact with those that share the same ambitions. With a concentration in Community Health Promotion I look forward to learning the different intervals of what Public Health is about and use my education to improve the health of our public overall. Accomplishing this degree will not only allow me to make a difference, but will enhance my knowledge and provide me the tools to be the front man of running a hospital of my own in the future. While in the process of reaching that goal, this degree will open many new doors and provide numerous opportunities to reach my greatest potential and aid in landing me a position in the field of Public Health.

Master of Public Health Student Association (MaPHSA)

MaPHSA was created in 2000 to represent students in the Master of Public Health (MPH) program at the University of Southern California (USC). Later in fall 2002 MaPHSA introduced its constitution, identifying the purpose of the organization and its structure, and subsequently received recognition as an official USC student association from the Graduate & Professional Student Senate (GPSS). 

Delta Omega Honorary Society in Public Health

Delta Omega is the honorary society for graduate studies in public health. Founded in 1924, there are dozens of chapters throughout the United States and abroad. The USC MPH program established the Beta Lambda chapter of Delta Omega in 2008. Election to membership is intended to not only recognize merit, but encourage further excellence in, and devotion to, public health work. Membership in Delta Omega reflects the dedication of an individual to quality in the field of public health and to protection and advancement of the health of all people.

The chapters elect new members each year from four groups:

  • Students who are candidates for a graduate degree in public health,
  • Faculty members at the school of public health, and
  • Alumni actively engaged in public health work
  • Honorary members possessing exceptional qualifications

Election from all three groups is based on outstanding performance: scholarship in students, teaching and research in faculty members, and community service in alumni.

How to become a member: 

Each year during the spring semester, the MPH program invites students who have completed at least one full year of academic courses, or those who are in their final semester of the program and who represent the top 25% in class standing to apply for election into the Delta Omega Honorary Society.

Applications are reviewed by the Delta Omega review committee and up to 10 students are elected to membership each year. Those elected into Delta Omega are deemed to be those who have demonstrated real or potential qualities of leadership in public health in addition to academic excellence.
