BS/MPH in Environmental Health Sciences


The mission of the MPH program in Environmental Health Sciences is to prepare students to prevent, detect mitigate environmental health problems; conduct environmental health investigations; and identify and monitor environmental health hazards.

Admission Requirements

Students must meet all the requirements for admissions to the MPH program at the School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine and are expected to have an educational background or experience in the life sciences, physical sciences, or engineering.


The 4+1 joint degree program allows outstanding Tulane BSPH students to complete the class requirements for both undergraduate and master's degrees at the School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine in a period of approximately five years. Fifteen credit hours of graduate core coursework taken while completing the BSPH applies towards the BSPH and the MPH (or MSPH) for those accepted into the joint degree program.

BSPH students apply to the joint degree program during their third year of the BSPH, or one year before they expect to fully matriculate as a graduate student.
