Students are required to complete 64 consisting of 20 courses. Full time students can complete the program in as few as five semesters and will be enrolled in fall and spring semesters (16 units or less per semester). Part-time study is also available.
Students admitted to the dual degree program will take a combination of psychology and public health courses each semester. As part of the MA coursework, students may pursue a concentration in health behavior research while MPH students select an emphasis in health promotion, education and evaluation. The combination of core courses will enable students to learn and to practice being a collaborative leader of change in their current or future work environments either internally within their organizations or externally with other institutions or the community. The nature of the dual degree program allows students to develop and integrate knowledge and skills across these fields more efficiently.
