4+1 B.S./M.P.H.

The Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences within the College of Public Health has developed a rigorous 5-year (4+1) program in which outstanding public health majors will have the opportunity to acquire a bachelor of science (B.S.) and master of public health (M.P.H.) degree, with a concentration in social and behavioral science.

In four years this combined degree program will offer exceptional students an opportunity to work closely with faculty in the department as they develop critical skills in public health and complete graduate work for professional careers in research, policy, administration, or real-world public health practice. 

The public health curriculum at Temple University is diverse, offering both undergraduate and graduate students access to faculty from a broad range of public health areas. The M.P.H. requirements will be satisfied by the end of the fifth year of study.  The undergraduate program will consist of 110 undergraduate credits and the graduate program will consist of 39 graduate credits, for a total of 149 credits.
