Accelerated Master of Public Health

UVM’s Program in Public Health Track for UVM Undergrads is an innovative, online, accredited Public Health Program leading to the Master of Public Health (MPH) degree. The program is a collaboration of disciplines, through its faculty and student community, and is applicable to the health needs of various populations in both healthcare and community settings.

UVM undergraduates enrolled in the Accelerated MPH can complete both their undergraduate degree and MPH in five years. Our program can help further your goals by teaching you to:

  • Evaluate and improve the health of various populations.
  • Work with a network of professionals in healthcare, government agencies, and non-profit organizations.
  • Navigate community resources.
  • Identify changes to healthcare systems and requirements for accountability.
  • Implement new models for population-based medical practice.

This online program is designed for highly motivated UVM undergraduate students wishing to complete both their undergraduate degree and MPH degree in five years.

Following acceptance to the Graduate College, students enrolled in the accelerated MPH program apply six Public Health graduate credits during their senior year toward both the undergraduate degree and the MPH. In addition, students can apply an additional three Public Health graduate credits taken during their senior year toward the MPH degree. Students would then take the additional credits required to complete the MPH during a fifth year of study, including the summer session.
