Interdisciplinary Programs

Coordinated Degrees with other Graduate Programs

We offer students a wide range of coordinated degree options. Students can combine a Public Health MPH with over 10 other professional degrees such as business, law, engineering, medicine, nursing, osteopathic medicine, dentistry, optometry, public administration or social work. Students are admitted separately to each program. Students must complete the MPH Core plus 10 credit hours of MPH focus courses for a total of 30 credit hours in addition to the other program's curriculum requirements. Twelve credit hours from the other curriculum are credited toward the MPH degree for a total of 42 MPH credit hours. Students may complete the MPH degree program totally on line, in class, or through a mix of on line and in class experiences. Out-of state on line students pay the same tuition rate as Alabama residents.  The admissions processes are conducted separately, and admissions decisions are made independently by each school.
