Combination Master’s Degrees

Program Overview

A Master of Public Health can be a useful addition to many other academic programs offered through the University of Florida. 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 an individual in any master’s program to develop a combination degree program with the MPH. These combination master’s programs are developed on an individual basis and must have the written approval of the representative of each academic unit involved and the dean of the Graduate School. Whenever appropriate, the MPH program will work enthusiastically with individual students to develop these collaborative degree programs.

Below are some examples of combination MPH programs:

  • MPH/MA
  • MPH/MS

Nine credits of coursework from one degree may be applied, with Graduate School approval, toward meeting the requirements of the second degree.
