Dual degree students can take a maximum of 15 units of the 46 units required for the MPH during their undergraduate program that will count toward both the BA and the MPH degrees. However, for four of the six MPH concentrations, it is highly recommended that students take a sixth course during their fourth year in the program in order to complete the dual degree in five years. This sixth course will NOT count towards their undergraduate degree.

Students who wish to concentrate in Biostatistics: To complete both the BA and the MPH with a concentration in Biostatistics in five years, students must complete three MPH required courses and two Biostatistics required courses as part of the undergraduate BA program. Students who complete fewer than five courses will extend the time it takes to complete both degrees beyond five years.


Students who wish to concentrate in Global Health: To complete both the BA and the MPH with a concentration in Global Health in five years, students must complete five MPH required courses as part of the undergraduate BA program. Students who complete less than five courses will extend the time it takes to complete both degrees beyond five years.


Students who wish to concentrate in Social & Behavioral Health, Epidemiology, or Public Health Nutrition: To complete both the BA and the MPH in five years, students must complete six MPH required courses as part of the undergraduate BA program, only five of which will count for both degrees. Students who complete less than six courses will extend the time it takes to complete both degrees beyond five years.


Students in all concentrations must earn a grade of C or better for the course to be applied to the MPH degree.
 

PLEASE NOTE: Undergraduate-level Public Health courses do not count toward the MPH degree, and therefore may not be substituted for any of the graduate-level required courses listed below.
