Applicants are expected to have earned an MPH or another relevant graduate degree (e.g., in epidemiology, medicine, nursing, social work, or public administration). Additionally, applicants must have at least 3 years of full-time public health or other relevant work experience after earning their graduate degree.

Students entering the program with a graduate degree but without an MPH are required to complete the five pre-requisite courses in epidemiology, biostatistics, health policy and management, environmental health, and social and behavioral science, before matriculating into the program. Successful applicants will have a demonstrable potential for leadership in public health, and a clear sense of why they wish to pursue a DrPH.

Applicants to the DrPH program must submit the following documentation:

  1. A curriculum vitae;
  2. Three letters of recommendation;
  3. A personal statement explaining why you’re interested in the program, particular faculty with whom you wish to work and your career goals;
  4. An official copy of transcripts from all institutions attended or attending.

Application Deadline:

December 1st for fall entry in the following year.
