About the Program

The program is designed for students who have a broad-based interest in health. This is a skills-based science degree so students can expect to learn about health at all levels – the cell, the individual, and the community. The core curriculum is made up of the basic elements of public health: epidemiology, biostatistics, environmental health, health systems, and global health. As students progress through the program, they have the opportunity to specialize their course of study through electives offered both within the program and from approved coursework in other academic fields.

Combined Degrees

High-achieving BSPH students may pursue a combined degree culminating in a master of public health (MPH), master of science in public health (MSPH), or the master of health administration (MHA). Students must declare their intention to pursue the combined degree by the spring of their junior year (three semesters before graduation). During the senior year, combined degree students will complete their undergraduate degree requirements while simultaneously taking graduate–level courses. Upon successful completion of the undergraduate degree, they are enrolled in the master’s program having fulfilled 12 credits of their required coursework. Students can expect a minimum additional year and a half of coursework and practica to fulfill the requirements for the graduate degree.

Peace Corps

The Peace Corps has long been a natural fit for many public health students, and Tulane has a long history of Peace Corps participation. If you think Peace Corps might be an option for you, consider participating in Peace Corps Prep.
