The department offers both master's and doctoral degree programs. Both degree programs are designed to prepare students for careers in public health practice or research.
Master's Degree Programs
The Department of Epidemiology also welcomes students to join us as Masters Internationalists. These students complete their MPH course work on campus, but they also gain vital public health experience through two years of service with the Peace Corps. The Peace Corps experience offers a number of personal and professional benefits to public health students, and it also fulfills the practicum requirement of the school.

Combined Degree Program
The Combined Degree Program allows outstanding BSPH students to combine their undergraduate studies with a public health professional master's degree at the School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine. Students may combine the BSPH with the MPH, MSPH, MHA or MPH&TM. The combined degree typically takes four semesters (including the summer semester) after completion of the BSPH degree. The combined degree program allows up to 12 graduate level credits to be completed while an undergraduate which saves approximately one semester. For full program details please see the Combined Degree webpage.
