MA-UEP/MPH Curriculum

Students work closely with an advisor to plan a course schedule that meets both core requirements and their specific interests. Generally, in the first and second semesters students take courses in the UEP Program at the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences; for the third and fourth semesters courses continue in the MPH Program at the School of Medicine. However, students are encouraged to integrate their knowledge in both programs from the start by taking courses to fulfill degree requirements via cross-registration. The final year is split between UEP and MPH enrollment.
