Available only to students enrolled in an MPH degree program at the School of Public Health.
Interdisciplinary concentrations are optional secondary areas of study to further personalize and enrich a Master of Public Health (MPH) degree. Students who are enrolled in an MPH program are eligible to add an interdisciplinary concentration to their coursework.
Students do not have to identify or apply to an interdisciplinary concentration prior to being admitted as an MPH student in the School of Public Health, but may begin an interdisciplinary concentration during their matriculation in the School of Public Health with the approval of the appropriate advisor.
To complete the interdisciplinary concentration students select from required and elective courses, as specified, for a designated number of credits. Students work with their academic advisor to select courses meeting academic goals and objectives and to plan for the overall progression of coursework. Completing an interdisciplinary concentration does not necessarily extend the amount of time to complete an MPH program.
Interdisciplinary concentrations are officially recognized areas of study, and are documented on the student’s University transcript upon successful completion.
