Combined Degree Program

The BSPH/MPH Combined Degree Program is a path for continuous study from the bachelor’s degree through a master’s level professional degree at the School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine (SPHTM).

The Combined Degree leads to a Master in Public Health (MPH), a Master of Science in Public Health (MSPH), a Master of Public Health and Tropical medicine (MPH&TM) or in a Master of Health Administration (MHA).

The Combined Degree is an opportunity for BSPH, BS, and BSM students to begin graduate study in their senior year; students may take up to 12 graduate credits of graduate courses, which are applied to both the student’s undergraduate degree (BSPH, BS, BSM) and graduate degree (MPH, MSPH, MPH&TM or MHA)

Learn more about the MPH, MSPH, MPH&TM, and MHA programs on the SPHTM website.

Students who take time off between degrees are not eligible for the Combined Degree. Students may return to the master’s degree program at a later time but cannot apply for graduate credit earned in the BSPH program for an MPH/MSPH/MHA program started at a later time.
