Public Health Dual Degrees

The needs of the public health workforce are diverse and ever-changing. Our students are diverse and enter public health at different points in their careers, from undergraduate through practicing nurses and physicians. To meet these needs, the Department of Public Health Sciences offers six programs:

  • Five-Year Bachelor/MPH Degree
    • Environmental Science BA or BS/MPH
    • Health Care Administration BS/MPH
    • Public Health BS/MPH
  • Doctor of Medicine/ Master of Public Health (MD/MPH)
  • Master of Social Work/Master of Public Health (MSW/MPH)
  • Public Health Certificate
  • MS in Clinical Research Methods and Epidemiology (CRME)

Note: Students entering the program may wish to pursue careers that may require licensure (e.g. Registered Environmental Health Specialist) or certification (e.g. Certified in Public Health or Certified Professional in Food Safety) upon or before employment. Loyola University Chicago cannot guarantee that the Master of Public Health will prepare students to meet the unique requirements for licensure or certification in their specific location and/or area of expertise. Students should check with their local licensing or certifying authority to determine what requirements are necessary.
