DrPH Academic & Course Requirements

The DrPH degree requires 42 credits: 39 from required courses and 3 from elective courses. A wide variety of elective courses are available within the Public Health Program and through other graduate and professional schools at Tufts University. To meet the need for public health professionals with interdisciplinary training, students are encouraged to diversify their curriculum by taking elective courses offered at other schools within Tufts University including the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy, the Fletcher Graduate School of International Affairs, and the Tufts School of Engineering. Students may also cross-register for courses at Boston College, Boston University and Brandeis University.
