The Public Administration (Joint Degree) program is offered jointly by the University of Miami College of Arts and Sciences and the Miller School of Medicine’s Department of Public Health Sciences.


The Public Administration (Joint Degree) program at University of Miami is designed for students who seek an in-depth knowledge of public health with training in management and public policy administration. Students may complete the requirements for the MPH and MPA degrees consecutively or in succession.

Applicants must be admitted into the MPH and MPA programs on a separate basis, based on the admissions requirements and procedure of each individual program. Acceptance by one program does not in any way indicate or guarantee acceptance by the other degree program. Both the MPA and the MPH degree programs require the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) as part of the admissions requirement.
