Dual Degrees

The Department Of Health Management and Policy offers several options for dual degrees both within Public Health as well as with other schools in the university. These formal degree programs afford students the opportunity to complete two degrees with a reduced course load in most cases.

We have designed our HMP curriculum around a set of core competencies that define professional excellence in health management and policy. The competency base defines professional skills that we expect our students to have when they leave the program. The competencies are found in our Competency Model, which is updated periodically and based on research, the knowledge base for these fields, and ongoing feedback from professionals in the field.

Students wishing to pursue a dual degree must apply to both programs and be admitted separately. An admissions decision in one program does not affect the admissions decision in the other program. The decision to pursue a dual degree can be made either before starting a program or during the first year of your degree program.

Available dual degrees include:
