Admissions

Dr. Pilsner

The UMass Amherst School of Public Health and Health Sciences utilizes the Schools of Public Health Application Service (SOPHAS) for receiving applications to our M.S., M.P.H., and Ph.D. degree programs. Please visit the SOPHAS website for a complete list of application procedures and instructions.

Admission decisions are based upon all application materials. Successful applicants generally have a GPA of 3.00 or better. For those with an advanced professional or doctoral degree, the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) can be waived by the department. A TOEFL exam is required for foreign nationals. A strong science background in a prospective applicant's undergraduate work is recommended.
