PHS Basic Admission Requirements

The MPH and MS-CR programs in Public Health Sciences are administered by the School of Medicine.  Application forms and their accompanying supporting documents should be completed on-line.

Applicants must hold a minimum of a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution (or qualifying foreign institution) in order to be considered for admission. Strong quantitative skills and computer literacy are vital to success in our program; therefore, special scrutiny is given to evidence of these abilities in each applicant’s materials.

A Complete Application Contains:
  • Completed, on-line application form, submitted electronically
  • Application fee
  • Statement of purpose (your rationale for pursuing graduate study in this area)
  • Transcripts of all colleges and universities attended and listed on your application form, regardless of whether a degree was earned
  • Minimum of two letters of recommendation (academic or professional references accepted)
  • Official report of standardized test scores (GRE, MCAT, LSAT, or GMAT) Exception: holders of doctoral degrees conferred by an accredited U.S. institution do not need to submit test scores
  • (Foreign students only) Official TOEFL score report
  • Curriculum vitae or resume

Applications should be submitted by March 1 for both the MPH and the MS-Clinical Research Programs. We recommend that applications be submitted as early as possible since we will review on a rolling basis.

Applications which are completed after March 1 will be considered late and will be evaluated on a space-available basis only.
