Doctoral Programs

Students may choose to work toward a doctor of public health (Dr.P.H.) or doctor of philosophy (Ph.D.) degree. Please note that the School of Public Health is suspending applications to the Dr.P.H. program for academic year 2017-2018. Some view the Dr.P.H. as a more practice-oriented degree and the Ph.D. as a more research-oriented degree. The Dr.P.H. and Ph.D. degrees require a minimum of 72 credits for completion. Candidates for either doctoral degree, in consultation with their advisers, must develop a proposed course of study, or curriculum; meet a seminar requirement; fulfill a teaching experience; pass a preliminary exam (Department of Biostatistics only); complete a practicum (Dr.P.H. students only); pass a qualifying examination; and defend a dissertation. In addition, Dr.P.H. candidates will need to complete a practicum experience.

For program requirements, visit the Dr.P.H. and Ph.D. degrees webpage or each department's webpage.

For information about rules and procedures for the doctoral program, review the Doctoral Program Policy Handbook.
