BA / MPH with Rutgers–Camden

ABOUT THE BACHELOR'S DEGREE / MASTER OF PUBLIC HEALTH (BA/MPH) ARTCULATED DEGREE

In partnership with Camden College of Arts and Sciences at Rutgers University–Camden, the Rutgers School of Public Health offers highly-qualified undergraduate students the opportunity to begin graduate study during their undergraduate years, thereby accelerating the Master of Public Health degree by requiring approximately 3-5 additional semesters beyond the Bachelors degree. This is not a concurrent degree program. Students earn their Bachelors degree first and then the MPH. This articulated degree, or Bachelors/Masters Program, is administered through the BA in Health Sciences program at Camden College of Arts and Sciences in collaboration with the School of Public Health.

LOCATION

Camden and New Brunswick

WHO'S ELIGIBLE

The Bachelors/Masters Program is open to all BA in Health Sciences majors attending Rutgers University–Camden.

They must be recommended to the program by their major adviser or college dean.

ADMISSIONS

Application to the BA/MPH degree program is open to all BA in Health Sciences majors attending Rutgers University–Camden. Faculty or college dean letters of recommendation should include a brief description of the student’s interests, track record, and statement of maturity. The faculty recommendation should be sent to Dr. Charlotte N. Markey at Camden College of Arts and Sciences (see contact information below).

Students must submit official transcripts of all prior work, an essay stating their career goals in public health, and letters of recommendation, including one from a Rutgers undergraduate adviser, to the School of Public Health.

CURRICULUM

The MPH degree program requires 45 credit hours, comprising 15 credits of core courses, 9-18 credits of required department courses, 6-15 credits of electives and 6 credits of Fieldwork. The Bachelors/Masters Program allows accepted BA/MPH students to take up to 15 graduate credits of MPH core course at the Rutgers School of Public Health. These graduate credits apply to both the undergraduate degree and the MPH degree, giving students advanced standing in the School of Public Health once students matriculate at the School of Public Health. Please note that the graduate credits earned as an undergraduate through the BA/MPH degree program at the Rutgers School of Public Health cannot be transferred to other graduate programs. Once accepted, questions regarding the registration process may be addressed to Dr. Charlotte N. Markey, PhD, Director of Health Sciences at Camden College of Arts and Sciences.
