In addition to the University's minimum requirements and those listed above, all applicants are expected to submit a statement of purpose and a resume. Applicants must have at least 5 years of work experience at the time of application.

Health and allied professionals who are unable to pursue a degree program during their regular working hours may earn the MPH degree by completing coursework in extended weekend sessions during the academic year and intensive summer sessions. Courses are taught by the faculty of the School of Public Health, and currently two departments offer a specialization in their area: Community Health Sciences offers a concentration in health education/promotion and Health Policy and Management offers a concentration in health care management.

Applicants are expected to fulfill the minimum overall requirements for admission to the MPH program. In addition, they must have at least three years of professional experience or the full-time equivalent in a health care setting.
