MS/MPH Program Requirements
For information about program requirements, visit the BU Bulletin.
Students pay tuition to the program in which they are primarily registered.
MS/MPH dual degree candidates have access to career advice through Career Services at SPH to help identify, interview for, and secure positions as they move forward along their career path.
Students must apply and be accepted to both the Division of Graduate Medical Sciences and to the School of Public Health. The acceptances do not have to be concurrent. The most successful pathway is for students to apply for the MPH program after their first semester in the MS program.
