Program-Specific Admission Requirements

Master of Public Health (MPH)

Applications are accepted for fall and spring semesters. Preferred applicants possess demonstrable leadership potential in teaching, research, and service focused on creating social policies and system changes conducive to good health and well-being. While no specific undergraduate major is required for admission, a record of undergraduate and/or graduate academic achievement and relevant work experience is critical for selection purposes.

Doctor of Public Health (DrPH)

Applications are accepted for fall and spring semesters. Applicants must possess the minimum of an MPH or related U.S. equivalent master’s degree(s) or terminal clinical/doctoral degree from a regionally accredited college or university to be considered for admission. Candidates must have completed at least one graduate-level course in each of the following five (5) areas: (a) Biostatistics, (b) Epidemiology, (c) Health Behavior/Health Education, (d) Health Services/Policy/Management, and (e) Environmental and Occupational Health. These courses must have been completed with a grade of “B” or better. If these courses were not from a Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) accredited institution, the candidate must submit syllabi to the DrPH program director for determination of pre-requisite fulfillment. Applicants who have not completed these courses but whose applications show exceptional potential for success in the program may be admitted conditionally to the DrPH program; however, they will be required to complete the remaining courses (as presented in the core course requirements for the MPH degree) with a grade of “B” or better before taking other required courses in the program.

PhD in Health Promotion Sciences

Applications are accepted for fall and spring semesters. Preferred applicants possess demonstrable leadership potential in teaching, research and service focused on creating social policies and system changes conducive to good health and wellbeing. A record of undergraduate and/or graduate academic achievement and relevant work experience is critical for selection purposes.
