Core course requirements for the Schoolwide DrPH Program 

The courses listed below should be taken during a prior MPH program (or relevant health-focused graduate program), in order to provide an academic foundation for the DrPH program.

If students have not taken these courses or equivalent ones during their MPH (or other relevant graduate program), then they may be required to take them (or to pass the equivalent waiver exams) during the coursework phase of the DrPH program. Please note: this coursework is in addition to the minimum 64 credits required for the DrPH degree.

           * successful passage of a waiver exam may be required to confirm mastery of course content 

When students matriculate into the DrPH program, their prior coursework will be reviewed and considered for applicability towards core course requirements for the DrPH Program. Students may be asked to submit course descriptions and syllabi for prior coursework in order to evaluate comparability of topics and learning objectives. Admitted students will be informed which core courses (if any) are not met and will need to be taken in addition to the DrPH requirements.
