Admissions

Dr. Rosa Rodriguez-Monguio with students

The Health Policy and Management concentration in the Department of Health Promotion and Policy offers advanced graduate degree programs to prepare public health professionals to design and implement programs to assist all people to participate in their life situations to the fullest extent of their capabilities. Consideration for admission is based of 5 key components of one’s application: (1) undergraduate GPA, (2) GRE scores, (3) prior work experience, (4) letters of reference, and (5) one’s personal statement. All 5 elements are carefully considered to gain as well-rounded a picture of the applicant as possible. Although we will not automatically exclude from further consideration applications from candidates with less than 2 years of professional experience, we give preference to applicants with substantial professional experience in the field of public health.

To apply to the M.S., M.P.H., or Ph.D. program, please visit the SOPHAS website.
