Dual Master of Arts and Master of Public Health

The Elliott School of International Affairs cooperates with the Milken Institute School of Public Health in offering a dual degree program leading toward the Master of Arts and the Master of Public Health in global health. The dual degree program is offered in all Elliott School fields. The student must be accepted for admission by both the Elliott School and the Milken Institute School of Public Health. Applications should be made separately to each school, with a notice of interest in the combined program. Students may also apply for the dual degree program after they have begun either program.

As part of this program, the Elliott School accepts up to 12 credit hours of course work from the Milken Institute School of Public Health in fulfillment of its degree requirements. The program takes approximately three years of full-time study for completion. Dual degree students may complete the requirements for each degree and receive a diploma for each degree after applying for graduation from each school separately. However, all work on each degree must be completed within five years from the student’s entry into that program, unless an extension of time is granted by the respective deans.
