Yale School of Public Health's M.P.H. program is designed for highly motivated students with a substantial interest in the area of public health. While some matriculants begin the program directly from undergraduate and graduate institutions, others have related public health work experience and/or a professional degree.
In general, the M.P.H. program requires four semesters in residence during which 20 courses must be completed. All M.P.H. students complete core courses in Biostatistics, Epidemiology, Environmental Health, Health Policy, and Social and Behavioral Sciences. Students must also fulfill divisional requirements that are specific to each academic program. In addition, students complete an internship between the first and second year of full-time study and either a Master's thesis or capstone course.
Joint Degree Applicants
Joint degree candidates must apply to each program and are encouraged to apply simultaneously. Be advised that application deadlines, documentation requirements and seat deposit due dates may differ greatly between programs. It is in the candidate's best interest to complete the application process early. Yale schools do not share documentation or application information. All admission decisions are independent.
