Public Health Program

Accelerated Master of Public Health

Eligible Missouri State undergraduate majors may apply for preliminary acceptance into the Master of Public Health program after admission requirements for the accelerated master's option have been satisfied. Once accepted, a maximum of 12 hours chosen from approved 600 or 700 level courses may be counted toward both the undergraduate and graduate degrees (Mixed Credit). This option gives the undergraduate students from a variety of majors the opportunity to complete the course requirements for the Master of Public Health degree in as little as three semesters and a summer after attaining the bachelor's degree rather than the typical four to five semesters and a summer. Refer to the Graduate Catalog for more information.

For courses to be designated as Mixed Credit, the graduate advisor, undergraduate department head, and Graduate College dean must approve by signing the Permission for Mixed Credit form. This form must be provided to the Office of the Registrar in Carrington Hall 320 no later than the end of the Change of Schedule Period for the semester.
