Through this four-year program, you will earn an MPH degree in health services administration and a Juris Doctor (JD) degree.
This collaborative program fosters the critical interrelationship between the delivery of health care services, the protection of public health and the legal system. You will be prepared to deal with the complexities of our current legal and health care systems, and to appreciate the expanding sources of conflict between individual and broader community-based health care needs and interests.
You will need to submit separate applications to and be admitted to the School of Law and the School of Public Health and Health Professions. Application to both schools may be simultaneous, or you may be admitted to one and opt for the combined degree program during your first year, and then seek admission to the other program.
You may be able to apply to the MPH program without taking the GRE if you meet the requirements outlined in the policy on the GRE waiver.
