Public Health MPH
Applicants to programs in the School of Public Health receive primary consideration through SOPHAS (www.sophas.org). Applicants who are advised by SPH to apply directly to the University at Albany's Office of Graduate Admissions may use the online application.
The MPH is a professional degree designed to prepare graduates to tackle real public health problems, as practitioners who can apply their breadth of understanding as well as some degree of expertise and experience in at least one specific area of public health. The School's interdisciplinary MPH degree program allows students to apply cutting edge scientific and technical knowledge to preventing disease and promoting wellness through organized community efforts. The diversity and complexity of today's public health concerns require practitioners who understand the political, ethical, economic, and scientific concerns involved in addressing the great challenges to the modern world.
