You must complete 45 credits for the MPP degree. You take all core courses, nine credits in a concentration, a three-credit course in which the professional paper (non-thesis) is completed, enough elective credits to bring total credits to 45, plus an internship of 400 hours or more.
You may apply eight health services research, policy, and administration credits toward your MPP concentration or take them as electives. Statistics courses taken for the MS degree may substitute for MPP requirements in Empirical Analysis (PA 5031 through PA 5035).
You can select from two concentrations in your MS degree:
Research and policy (Plan B) (46 credits) or
Outcomes research (Plan A) (47 or 50 credits)
You may apply up to eight MPP credits to the total required for this MS degree. Requirements also include an internship and a research project paper. We strongly recommended that students in this public health dual degree program take the entire health services research, policy, and administration methods sequence in two consecutive years.
