Many of our students envision a career deeply steeped in impactful cross-disciplinary work. The Yale School of Public Health encourages students who want to pursue joint degrees to contact admissions offices at both programs to learn about admissions requirements and deadlines, as joint candidates must apply to and be accepted by each program. If admitted, joint degree students will fulfill degree requirements for both programs. A minimum of 15 course units will be completed towards the MPH degree as part of a joint degree. Typically, students who gain admission to two 2-year Masters-level programs at Yale will combine the two degrees into one 3-year joint degree program, with 1.5 years spent at each school. However, every joint degree may be slightly different in terms of requirements and timeline. Advisers from the respective schools will assist students with mapping curriculum.
Pursuit of a joint degree is contingent on an existing joint degree agreement with the Yale School of Public Health and the other Yale School in question. Below is the list of potential joint degrees, along with contact information for their admissions offices. Please be in touch with the admissions staff at each school to discuss deadlines and requirements for their programs. Given the unique nature and duration of their programs, more information is available online specifically for the Accelerated MBA/MPH with the School of Management; the BA-BS/MPH 5-year Program with Yale College; the MSN/MPH with the School of Nursing; and the MMSc/MPH with the Physician Associate Program.
