Academically strong undergraduate students at the University of Texas at Austin who are pursuing the BS in Public Health have the option of earning a MPH from the School of Public Health at the UT Health Sciences Center through the Public Health "4+1" Advanced Program. 

The Public Health "4+1" Advanced Program allows Public Health students to complete their B.S. in Public Health (BSPH) through UT Austin and their Masters in Public Health (MPH) through the UT Health Science Center School of Public Health (UTSPH) in approximately 5 years. Students accepted to the program will take undergraduate courses and graduate courses at the UTSPH Austin Regional Campus simultaneously in their senior year. After graduating with their BSPH, students finish the second year of their MPH degree through any of the six campuses of the UT School of Public Health depending on the student's area of interest. An MPH usually takes 2 years to complete. 

For more information about the “traditional” MPH program, please visit the UTSPH website.

- Minimum 3.4 UT GPA

- Less than 18 hours of undergraduate coursework remaining in senior year
