Successful applicants to the MPH Program typically have the following.
- A strong academic record and relevant academic preparation with particular emphasis on quantitative skills. It is important to submit application materials that clearly demonstrate strong quantitative skills, (e.g., quantitative coursework on your academic transcripts or quantitative scores on standardized tests).
- Clear career goals that are consistent with your anticipated training. It is important to clearly communicate how an MPH degree fits in with your overall career goals.
- At least two years of full-time, post-baccalaureate, health-related work experience or a doctoral degree in a field underlying public health. This requirement is waived for applicants who are medical students or applicants to the JD/MPH, MSW/MPH, and the MSN/MPH combined degree programs.
