Program Overview


An MPH degree can be a useful addition to many other academic programs. Since public health activities are carried out through numerous public entities and private firms, an MPH degree can serve many careers very well. The University of Florida provides a framework for individuals in any PhD program to develop a non-traditional doctoral/master’s degree program. Whenever appropriate, the MPH program will work enthusiastically with individual students to develop these collaborative degree programs.

PhD Program Profiles at the Graduate School’s webpages maintains a list of the various PhD programs offered through the UF Graduate School.

Graduation Requirements


All students in collaborative MPH programs must meet graduation requirements of the MPH. Programs developed on an individual basis must have the written approval of the representative of each academic unit involved and the dean of the Graduate School. Nine credits of coursework from one degree may be applied, with Graduate School approval, toward meeting the requirements of the second degree. The Graduate School maintains the appropriate forms for nontraditional doctoral/master’s degree programs.
