Current Students

As a current doctoral student at the School of Population and Public Health, you will need to take 16.5 credits in the listed core courses and maintain a B+ average in your course work. The degree also requires the completion of a comprehensive exam and proposal presentation at SPPH’s thesis screening panel.

There are a number of opportunities at SPPH to expand your academic life beyond your courses, including PhD Research Seminars and Grand Rounds, as well as networking and collaborative opportunities through the student association, The Association of Population and Public Health Students.
