The 公共卫生3+2项目 with the 内布拉斯加大学 Medical Center (UNMC) allows 体育菠菜大平台 students to continue their education at UNMC resulting in a dual degree with a Bachelor of Science (BS) and a Master in Public Health (MPH) 在五年内. This program provides students interested in public health an opportunity to complete their BS and MPH in a shorter time frame and at a reduced cost than completing both degrees separately (141 credit hours vs 162 credit hours).

During students’ first three years of study, they will complete all 一般的研究 requirements and 99 total hours. During the 4th year of the program, students will complete 24 graduate credit hours from UNMC of which 21 will transfer back to 体育菠菜大平台 for completion of the Bachelors of Science in Applied 健康科学 degree. 在第五年, students will complete remaining requirements for the Masters in Public Health program (accredited by the Council on 教育 for Public Health).

学生 will gain the MPH degree in one of the following concentration areas: biostatistics, 流行病学, 应急准备, environmental and occupational health, 健康促进, maternal and child health or public health administration and policy.

Any major can be chosen for the 3+2 Program. 学生 will work with their 公共卫生顾问 to develop an integrated plan of study to best prepare for graduate school and career interests.


学生 are eligible to apply for a combined 3+2 program in Public Health if:

  • They have completed at least 75-81 undergraduate credit hours and have a plan to have completed at least 99 undergraduate credits prior to the fall MPH program start;
  • 有一个3.3 cumulative GPA (Grade Point Average) in all previous undergraduate work; and
  • They have prerequisite training that will enable them to pursue the MPH concentration program selected.

The 公共卫生3+2项目 does NOT guarantee acceptance into the UNMC MPH Program. 学生 must apply to the MPH graduate program, following the normal graduate admission process, and indicate on the application their desire to enter the 3+2 program. If a student is admitted to the MPH program, then they become eligible to enroll in its combined 3+2 program.
