Application, admission, and degree-granting requirements and regulations shall be applied equitably to all individuals, applicants and students regardless of age, gender, race, disability, sexual orientation, religion or national origin.
All applicants must apply through IUPUI. All applicants are required to submit three letters of recommendation and a personal statement.
A degree in public health is not required to be admitted. However, students must have a master’s degree or earned doctorate to be eligible for the program.
Students without a master’s degree in public health from an accredited school of public health will also need to complete core masters-level courses in epidemiology, health policy and management, biostatistics, social and behavioral science and environmental health science or document their equivalencies before a DrPH degree can be conferred. We strongly recommend completion of these courses prior to beginning the DrPH program, though it is also feasible to complete the MPH core courses concurrently with the doctoral coursework.
