African Studies & Public Health M.A./M.P.H.

Dual M.A./M.P.H., African Studies & Public Health

In partnership with the School of Public Health (SPH), we offer a three-year program that qualifies you for a dual master’s degree (M.A./M.P.H). The program is a response to the growing need for public health personnel with Africa-specific knowledge and research experience in the humanities and social sciences.

The dual M.A./M.P.H program requires completion of a minimum of 60 credit hours of graduate course work and the two degrees must be awarded simultaneously. You will be assigned a mentor or an advisor from each unit. Your thesis committee must include a representative from each academic unit who will serve as co-chairs of the thesis project.
