The admissions committee will select applicants with demonstrable potential in teaching, research and service aimed to create social policies and systems changes conducive to good health and wellbeing. While no specific undergraduate major is required for admission, a record of undergraduate and graduate academic achievement and relevant work experience and achievements will be critical for selection purposes for the public health PhD. Specifically, applicants who satisfy the following minimum requirements will be considered for admission.
A bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university
Cumulative grade point average of 3.00 or higher for each degree completed
Graduate Record Examination (GRE) of 1000 (combined verbal and quantitative) prior to 08/2011, or 297 after 08/01/2011. May substitute GMAT or MCAT scores in lieu of GRE
Current resume or CV
Three letters of recommendation from employers, instructors or others who can assess the applicant's academic and professional potential are required. At least one recommendation must be from an academic source.
The program is currently offering admission to the fall semester only.
Official notification of admission to the PhD program from the CGU Office of Admissions will be sent. If offered admission, a decision card must be completed and returned. This confirms acceptance of the offer of admission.
