Interdisciplinary Concentrations

MPH students have the option of pursuing a variety of interdisciplinary concentrations. These concentrations are non-degree programs designed to deepen students’ experience in academic or professional areas aligned with their career goals. Some concentrations are restricted to students in certain programs and/or MPH fields of study.

These interdisciplinary concentrations do not replace the MPH or field of study requirements. Students interested in pursuing an interdisciplinary concentration are encouraged to compare their degree requirements with those of the interdisciplinary concentration. Students unable to meet all requirements of the interdisciplinary concentration often still find value in participating in as many of the experiential learning opportunities (courses, seminars, workshops, etc.) as possible to enhance their knowledge and skills. The interdisciplinary concentration does not appear on the student’s diploma or transcript.
