To apply to this combined program, students must submit separate sets of credentials to Tufts University Graduate School of Arts & Sciences (GSAS) and Tufts University’s Public Health and Professional Degree Programs (PHPD) – we are not able to share credentials.
There are two entry points to the UEP/MPH program:
First Entry Point: Students may apply to the UEP/MPH dual-degree track at the same time that they apply to GSAS by completing an online application to PHPD and choosing UEP/MPH from the drop down menu. (Please note that you must submit a separate application to Tufts University Graduate School of Arts & Sciences.)
Second Entry Point: Students may apply during their first or second year in the UEP. Applicants who enter through this pathway must apply to the UEP/MPH program by May 15th of their first or second year using the online Tufts application. Admission to GSAS does not guarantee admission to the MPH program.
Students must be admitted to both programs independently. Upon acceptance into the dual degree program, students are required to meet with coordinators from each program to plan an overall course of study that matches their background, interests, and degree requirements. Consulting each school’s Registrar’s Office is also recommended to help the student determine when they will start in PHPD (or UEP). PHPD will send a candidate reply form with the admit letter where the student will indicate which semester he or she plans on enrolling. Tuition and fees are assessed and paid to each school based on the semester of enrollment. Students are eligible for financial assistance based on current policies within each department.

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.
