Medical Students Medical Students

The University of Miami’s School of Nursing and Health Studies (SONHS) and the Department of Public Health Sciences (DPHS) offer 4+1 programs that combine a Bachelor of Science in Health Science (BSHS) and a Master's in Public Health (MPH) or a Master’s of Science in Public Health (MSPH) degree. These five-year, dual-degree programs are an excellent opportunity to bring together already developed academic programs as the need for public health professionals grows exponentially.  If accepted, students complete the combined bachelor’s and master’s degrees in 5 years.

To be eligible, applicants must apply for the program through the SOPHAS admissions portal during the Fall or Spring semester of their second (sophomore) or third (junior) undergraduate year. Admission decisions regarding the entry of BSHS students into the MPH or MSPH program are made solely by the Admissions Committee of the Department of Public Health Sciences. Applicants must be in good academic standing as defined by the School of Nursing at the time of submission. Students must meet minimum admissions standards at the time of acceptance, as well as upon completion of their BSHS degree. Students must have at least a 3.0 GPA in health sciences undergraduate coursework to be considered for the program.
