The Division of Graduate Medical Sciences and the School of Public Health offer a dual degree that allows genetic counseling professionals to broaden the depth and scope of their practice, and increase future employment opportunities across the public health, advocacy, health education and research fields.
How the MS/MPH Dual Degree Works
- Number of credits: 40 SPH credits and 49 GMS credits
- Program Length: 2.5 years minimum. The standard program format is full-time but there is some flexibility for SPH-only semesters
Students are assessed tuition and fees based on the program of primary registration.
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 and matched to the Division of Graduate Medical Sciences program. Students must also apply and be accepted to the School of Public Health program. The acceptances do not have to be concurrent.
