MPH Program Overview
The University of California Los Angeles offers a number of different MPH programs to fit almost any student’s specific needs. The Executive MPH programs are designed so that students can meet during the summer and on weekends, for example, while dual degree programs and standard two year MPH programs are also available. The program is made up of core courses, concentration area courses, and a field study project. The program is fully accredited and designed to give students the skills to succeed in their field.
MPH Curriculum and Courses
The specifics of the program curriculum will vary depending on the different type of MPH program one enrolls in, but will always feature classes from five key core classes. These areas of concentration are:
• Community Health Sciences
• Health Services
• Environmental Health Sciences
There are several specific classes within each of these departments, each one designed to help students fully understand the specifics of the topic.
Students applying to the MPH program need to submit their GRE scores, all transcripts from their undergraduate studies, proof of a bachelor’s or higher degree, and more. Students will also need to complete an application and download a check list from the school. This check list will allow students to ensure that they submit all required information when they mail off their application.
MPH Tuition and Financial Aid
Full time tuition at UCLA usually costs around 23,424 dollars per semester for residents and about 46,302 dollars for nonresident students. Part time students will be charge by the credit hour. The financial office of UCLA can help students learn more about financial aid options including teacher assistantship, loans, grants, and more. Students who are currently employed may find that their employer offers various forms of tuition assistance as well, though this isn’t always the case.
