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 18 professional degrees such as business, law, engineering, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, 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.  We also have two coordinated Master of Science in Public Health (MSPH) Programs; MSPH / MD in Medicine and the MSPH / PhD in Psychology (with the University of Alabama).

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 students taking online courses pay the same tuition rate as Alabama residents.  The admissions processes are conducted separately, and admissions decisions are made independently by each school.

Coordinated Degree Programs

UAB has many degree programs (both on-campus and online) that can lead to professional licensure or certification (PLC).  Licensure requirements vary from state to state and by professional organization.  UAB is working to develop an online, publically-accessible database, to assist in providing this state-by-state information.  In the meantime, if you are interested in learning about potential professional licensure requirements in your state for a specific degree program, please contact the UAB State Authorization office at or call Dr. Lisa Reburn (205) 934-3258.
