The Masters of Public Health (MPH) is a 42 credit hour graduate program designed to provide students with core knowledge and skills necessary for the development, implementation, and advancement of evidence-based public health initiatives. The MPH includes a single concentration in “Global Health”.
The admissions requirements for this program include: undergraduate degree with a minimum cumulative 3.2 GPA, TOEFL scores (for international applications), undergraduate transcripts, three letters of recommendation, and a resume and personal statement.
Incoming students must demonstrate public health foundational knowledge by either (a) earning an UG BSPH from a CEPH accredited program or (b) demonstration of Public Health “Foundational Knowledge” as outlined in CEPH accreditation documents.
Part-time study is acceptable; however, time to degree completion depends on available course offerings and number of courses enrolled. Time limit to degree completion is 7 years.
Limited department financial aid is available in the form of graduate assistantships and scholarship credits for students enrolled in masters and doctoral programs. Financial aid is determined based on merit.
Additional information regarding graduate financial aid can be found at Graduate Student Aid
Students may transfer up to 9 credits. Substituted/transferred course work should cover material equivalent to that which is covered in the relevant required course. Substitution/transfer requests will need to be approved by the graduate committee for public health programs. All students are expected to file a tentative program of study in their second semester. Students transferring courses from another institution must file a program of study prior to completing 12 credits at Syracuse University.
Certification for an advanced degree at Syracuse University requires a minimum average of 3.0 for work comprising the program for the degree and a 2.8 average for all credits earned.
Courses are taught in classrooms across Syracuse University. In addition, research laboratories currently housed in White Hall will provide students opportunities to engage in scholarship with faculty mentors.
