Master of Public Health (MPH)
The program is designed to be completed in two years with full-time study, or four to five years with part-time study of two courses per semester. An MPH degree can also be completed with the 4 + 1 option, in which students with a BS or BA degree in a relevant discipline take additional courses toward MPH prerequisites. Earning an MPH with this option usually takes one additional year beyond the undergraduate degree—though you may be eligible for advanced standing if you’ve taken up to five graduate courses in an accredited program or you have up to four courses that count towards MPH requirements.
