Application Deadline: March 1st

Academic Requirements:

College Biology, or its equivalent, is a prerequisite to graduate from our MPH program.  Students who do not have this will normally be expected to take such a course by the end of their first fall semester.  As Tufts MPH students, they can satisfy this requirement by taking our 0.5 credit Public Health Biology course offered each fall.  Enrolling at another college or university to take an undergraduate level biology course before the end of their first fall semester with us is also acceptable.
