Curriculum

A key feature of the MPH/MPP and MPH/MURP is that 12-14 credits from each program may be double-counted, which saves you valuable tuition cost (cost of 24 credits) and time (two terms). Below are two sample schedules for UMN HHH students. Remember you may be admitted or enrolled to any accredited MPP or MURP program to be eligible for the dual degree.

We will work with your MPP or MURP curriculum to identify courses that could transfer to the MPH program.  The examples below are for UMN MPP or MURP students.

Effective fall 2018, a new required course will be added to the MPH curriculum: PubH 6250 Fdt of PubH, 2cr and the requirements for the Field experience, (which will be titled Applied Practice Experience) and the MPH Culminating Experience, (will be titled Integrated Learning Experience) will be revised.  More details will be posted soon.

You will be assigned a faculty adviser from both programs and will also have the resources of the programs’ advisers and coordinators.

Many of the MPH elective courses are offered at the Public Health Institute during the University of Minnesota’s three-week May session in the last week in May and first weeks in June. The PHI offers course topics that are timely and current to public health and are taught in a non-traditional concentrated format, enabling students to complete up to seven credits in three weeks.
