BS/MSPH in Environmental Health Sciences


The mission of the MSPH program in Environmental Health Scences is to prepare students to recognize, evaluate, and control environmental health problems; use quantitative methods to evaluate environmental data; and to manage delivery of environmental health services.

Admission Requirements

Students must meet all the requirements for admissions to the MSPH 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.
