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 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 will be required to take them during the coursework phase of the DrPH program, in addition to the minimum 64 credits required for the DrPH degree.

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.
