Our program requires 42 credits. You may transfer in up to 17 credits from an outside institution. Many students enroll full time to complete their MPH in six semesters. You can go at your own speed—you may take up to seven years to complete your degree.

If you are in a dual degree program, time to degree completion may vary. Talk with your MPH advisor to draft a dual degree program plan and map out specific requirements for your degrees.
