Applying for the Program

Students need to apply to the School of Public Health with a separate application.  Students must be admitted to both programs to participate in the dual degree.

Course Requirements

To complete the dual degree, students take all the core courses in each program, 9 elective credits from the School of Public Affairs, 9 elective credits from the School of Public Health, and the School of Public Health’s capstone course requirements.  Total credits required: 60 semester credit hours.  For more information, see the course map provided on the School of Public Affairs website; spa.ucdenver.edu.

When to Enroll

Students should indicate intention to complete the dual degree upon application to the School of Public Affairs and simultaneously complete the application for the School of Public Health.  SPA does not have a limit on the number of students who can enroll.  Students already enrolled in the School of Public Affairs student may begin the SPH application right away (see the SPH for application deadlines), while taking MPA classes.  It is best to get started on the application process right away, so that advising matches graduation goals.

Advising

Once admitted to the dual degree program, students have an advisor from each school.
