Dual Degree Programs

Boston University School of Public Health offers five graduate dual degree programs.

Dual degree candidates allow for greater diversity of skills, interests, and expertise in the student body. Dual degrees also offer students cost and time savings by combining the core elements of two degree programs. The school offers five dual degree programs with Boston University schools and programs that complement the goals of public health education: the MSW/MPH with the School of Social Work; the MD/MPH with the Chobanian & Avedisian School of Medicine with an option for BA/MD candidates; the JD/MPH with the School of Law; the MBA/MPH with the Questrom School of Business; and the MS/MPH with Graduate Medical Sciences in the Chobanian & Avedisian SOM. The School of Public Health also offers BA/MPH and BS/MPH programs with the College of Arts & Sciences and the Sargent College of Health & Rehabilitation Sciences, respectively.

Students in the dual degree programs offered at the school fulfill all degree requirements for both programs. All dual degree candidates complete a minimum of 40 credits at the School of Public Health and a minimum of 8 credits in pre-approved, designated courses at the partner school. Students follow the SPH Grading Policy for their MPH courses.
