Applying to the Dual Degree Program

Students must apply to and be accepted into each school separately in order to be eligible for a dual degree. Applicants must request application materials from both schools. Admission decisions for the concurrent program are made by separate committees at each school. Applicants must be granted admission to both schools to be admitted to the dual degree program.

Drucker alumni who graduated less than five years ago may also apply to the MPH program, and if accepted, they will be able to apply Drucker credits toward their public health degree.
