Pre-Public Health

The Master of Public Health (MPH) degree with a concentration in Global Health is a rigorous multi-disciplinary professional degree program for students desiring a career improving public health through population health program development and evaluation, implementation of behavioral, environmental or policy interventions and evidence-based practice. The program prepares graduates to lead and positively influence ongoing and emerging population health threats globally and locally.

The Master of Public Health program of study includes a minimum of 44 credits. MPH courses are offered in the evening and on the weekend, in hybrid or online format providing flexibility for working professionals and those with family responsibilities. One international experience approved by the department is mandatory and can be fulfilled by completing the 200-hour practicum at an international site or participating in a summer or January-term global studies course abroad. The program of study assures graduate competencies in global health as designated by the Association of Schools and Programs in Public Health.

St. Catherine University offers two alternatives for completing the Master of Public Health (MPH). The MPH program is available to students who have completed a B.A. or B.S. degree in another major. In addition, a dual-degree program is available to eligible St. Catherine University undergraduate students. Economics, communication studies, exercise and sport science, nutrition science, psychology, public health: community health worker, public health: health sciences, public health: public policy, women and international development, and women's studies have developed sequences of courses that include the Master of Public Health (MPH) program prerequisites, liberal arts core requirements and major course work in their respective fields. Upon completion of the curriculum, students will earn a B.A. or B.S. degree (depending on degree available and completion of applicable liberal arts and science core requirements) and a Master of Public Health (MPH).

Post-Baccalaureate Applicants

To be considered for admission, applicants must meet the following requirements:

  • A completed baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited institution of higher learning by the time of enrollment. Applicants with a college or university degree completed outside of the United States must submit an official evaluation from World Education Services as well as original transcripts and official translations of all documents not in English. 
  • An undergraduate cumulative grade-point average (G.P.A.) of 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale. Applicants who have a cumulative G.P.A. lower than 3.0 should submit an explanatory statement with their application for consideration.
  • Prerequisite Courses (Students must have achieved a C or better in prerequisite courses):
    •  College-level statistics or research methods course
    •  College-level health-related science course (i.e., biology, nutrition, anatomy)

Dual Degree (3+2) Applicants

To be considered for admission, applicants must meet the following requirements:

If admitted, students will typically be awarded the St. Catherine baccalaureate degree after nine months in the MPH program. The undergraduate major will be applied science in communication studies, nutrition science, psychology, or women and international development; or economics, public health: community health worker, or public health: public policy. Following successful completion of all the MPH degree requirements, the master of public health degree is awarded. Students not accepted into the MPH program can complete a major in communication studies, economics, nutrition science, psychology, public health: community health worker, public health: public policy, or women and international development by taking the remaining courses in the sequences outlined by each department. Upon completion of these requirements, students will be awarded the St. Catherine's baccalaureate degree with a major in the selected field.

The curriculum for each area of study is listed below.  NOTE: The graduate MPH courses students take after completing their B.A. or B.S. degree are listed at the end of this section.
