The master of public health (M.P.H.) degree provides students with a clear understanding of the roles of the core disciplines in public health. Graduate study in public health is offered through Rutgers School of Public Health
. Faculty from the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy have been central in developing the graduate program and maintain a strong interest in the program through teaching and research.
In partnership with Rutgers University-New Brunswick,
the Rutgers School of Public Health offers highly-qualified
undergraduate students the opportunity to begin graduate study during
their undergraduate years, thereby accelerating the M.P.H. degree by requiring approximately three-to-five additional semesters
beyond the bachelor's degree. This is not a concurrent degree program.
Students earn their bachelor's degree first and then the M.P.H.
The bachelor's/master's program is open to all undergraduate majors attending Rutgers University-New Brunswick.
Exceptional, well-prepared students from any major with at least 60
credits and a cumulative GPA of 3.2 or better, and who wish to pursue
graduate studies at the Rutgers School of Public Health are encouraged
to seek advising about the Accelerated (B.A./M.P.H. or B.S./M.P.H.) program
