MCP/MPH with College of Environmental Design

This concurrent degree program is for students who want to serve as liaisons between the public health and community planning functions of local or state government. Students are expected to demonstrate strengths in policy analysis and strategic planning, with particular emphasis on the use of knowledge of population health, epidemiology, health services, and public policy to address issues of community health and health care delivery in complex urban environments.

Students complete the core curriculum of the School of Public Health and City and Regional Planning, after which they may specialize in particular areas of study, such as Community Health Sciences, Environmental Health, or Economic and Regional Planning. Applicants apply to the MCP/MPH degree track in the School of Public Health and indicate one area of study, specifically, Health and Social Behavior, Epidemiology, Health Policy and Management, or Environmental Health.
