BS/MPH: Epidemiology



COVID-19 update: This course will start online and continue on campus later. Read more

What will I learn?

The accelerated MPH epidemiology program allows high-achieving undergraduate students in the public health major the opportunity to earn both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in public health in five years, rather than the usual six. The five-year program consists of three and a half years in undergraduate status and one and a half years in graduate status.

Graduates of the accelerated MPH epidemiology track meet nationally accredited core competencies covering knowledge and skills required of public health professionals. They also have credits of specialized graduate training in public health.

Accelerated MPH students learn from an integrated multidisciplinary curriculum that bridges theory, research and practice to prepare students to engage in rigorous, collaborative, evidence-informed and reflexive public health practice. They will be able to collect, analyze and interpret epidemiological information, generate theory-driven hypotheses and research questions, and work in true collaboration with diverse community partners to create social change to improve the public’s health and reduce health inequities.

The bachelor’s in public health requires a minimum of 120 credits. The MPH Epidemiology track requires 49 credits. Up to 30 graduate course credits may be double-counted toward the BS in public health.
