Accelerated Undergraduate/MPH Degrees

The Program in Public Health offers an opportunity for an accelerated Master in Public Health (MPH) degree program with a variety of undergraduate degrees including a Bachelor of Science (BS) in Applied Mathematics and Statistics; a Bachelor of Science (BS) in Pharmacology; and a Bachelor of Arts in Women's Studies; a Bachelor of Arts in Earth and Space Sciences.

Students in these programs can complete both degrees in 10-12 semesters. For the first two or three years, students complete undergraduate coursework including General Education and undergraduate major requirements. During either their third or fourth year (once a majority of their undergraduate degree requirements are completed), students begin taking graduate courses as outlined by the Plan of Study. In their fifth and sixth years, students complete the remaining graduate requirements for the MPH degree.

Admissions Requirements

Under Stony Brook University policy, students must complete 60 credits of undergraduate course work (Junior Status) with a minimum GPA of 3.0 in all college work before being admitted into any combined Bachelor/Masters degree program. Additional entry requirements for the MPH combined degree consist of:
