Earn Your MPH Faster & More Affordably

The Bachelor/Master of Public Health (MPH) programs are designed for undergraduate College of Health Sciences students who have an early interest in pursuing an MPH degree. The joint program curriculum allows students to earn undergraduate and 10-17 graduate credits at the same time, which then count for both their bachelor’s and master’s degrees.

An additional benefit for undergraduate students is that they will be completing graduate courses at the undergraduate tuition rate while they are enrolled in the joint program.

The degrees are independent; each is awarded when completed, with specific courses accepted for the MPH degree after the bachelor degree is awarded. The joint program courses are offered in a variety of delivery formats including face-to-face, evenings, mixed-mode, and online. Admission and course requirements of each joint undergraduate/graduate program are at the bottom of this page.
