About

Graduate Medical Sciences and the School of Public Health offer a dual degree in Medical Sciences and Public Health at Boston University that is broadly based in preclinical medical sciences and public health.

Overview

Students of the Medical Sciences and Public Health program offered by Boston University must apply and be accepted to both Graduate Medical Sciences and the School of Public Health. The acceptances do not have to be concurrent, but students must be accepted to both programs before completing either program. We strongly suggest that students apply to the MPH program after their first semester in the MS program.

The MS/MPH degrees are simultaneous degrees and are awarded together. Students must successfully complete the requirements of both programs.

MPH Requirements for MS/MPH Candidates

The MPH is a 48-credit degree. MS/MPH students must complete a minimum of 40 credits in residence at SPH and 8 credits are completed at GMS. All courses counted to the MPH portion of the MS/MPH must be numbered SPH XX 700 and above. No courses taken outside of the School of Public Health will count toward the MPH, including courses taken at other Boston University schools and colleges.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Quantitative Core 
  • Leadership and Management 
  • Health Systems, Law, and Policy
  • Individual, Community, and Population Health
