Accelerated Degrees

The Dornsife School of Public Health offers accelerated degrees for highly talented undergraduate students interested in fast-tracking their careers in public health.

The accelerated degrees are offered with undergraduate majors in Public Health, allowing students to complete both their bachelor’s and master’s degrees in a condensed timeframe, and at a reduced cost.

Public Health BS/MPH

The accelerated Bachelor of Science/Master of Public Health (BS/MPH) allows undergraduate public health majors to complete both their bachelor’s and master’s degree in five years.

Students are able to gain admission to the BS/MPH program through two avenues.

They may apply directly into the BS/MPH program off the Drexel University common application. Alternatively, if a student is denied this route or does not apply directly on the common application, a student may be evaluated for the BS/MPH program at the end of the freshman year or first quarter of the sophomore year. If a prospective students meets all the necessary requirements and has room in his/her academic schedule, they will be a candidate to join the BS/MPH.

BS/MPH students are of exceptional academic quality and will begin taking graduate courses during their senior year. BS/MPH students will apply to the MPH program in their junior year. Standardized test scores are not a requirement of the application. During the hybrid senior year, BS/MPH students maintain undergraduate status in which their undergraduate scholarships and financial aid apply toward all courses.

BS/MPH students are eligible to receive merit-based scholarships during the two-quarter graduate year.
