Application, admission, and degree-granting requirements and regulations shall be applied equitably to all individuals, applicants and scholars regardless of age, gender, race, disability, sexual orientation, religion or national origin.
All applicants are required to submit three letters of recommendation and a personal statement. The letters of recommendation must come from individuals who can speak to applicants’ leadership abilities. Personal statements must include detailed responses to a list of questions provided in the application instructions.
A degree in public health is not required to be admitted. However, individuals must have a master’s degree or earned doctorate to be eligible for the program.
Individuals 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.
