We look for students who have a strong foundation in the quantitative, behavioral and biological sciences, regardless of undergraduate major. Other indicators of a commitment to a graduate program, which are carefully weighed in the admissions process, include participation in public health research, particularly mentored research programs, and related professional and life experiences. We look for students who have strong quantitative and writing skills. Students must have taken a course in 1) psychology, sociology or anthropology, 2) Anatomy, physiology or biology, 3) statistics, and 4) research methods.
Previous experience in research or related professional experiences is strongly suggested.
Applicants for the part-time program need a master's degree and professional experience in a related field.
