Did you know?
Many courses from other Boston University colleges, such as the School of Management and the School of Communications, have courses that are pre-approved to count for SPH credit!  A list of non-BUSPH courses which count for MPH elective credit can be found here.

School of Public Health students are eligible to cross-register for one course per semester during Fall and Spring semesters at Tufts University, Boston College, Brandeis University and Hebrew College. Three nutrition courses at Tufts are already pre-approved (see list above). All students who wish to cross-register for a course within the consortium must be registered for at least one course at BUSPH during the relevant semester.
