Dual Degree Options

The University of Memphis values interdisciplinary collaboration, and the School of Public Health is pleased to offer dual degrees in Law (JD/MPH) and Pharmacy (PharmD/MPH), as well as collaborations with other fields, such as Audiology (AuD/MPH), Social Work (MSW/MPH), Psychology (PhD/MPH), and Anthropology (MA/MPH).

Popular Programs

JD/MPH                           A program of study leading to both a Master of Public Health (MPH) from the School of Public Health and a Juris Doctorate (JD) from the Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law. The MPH, a 42-credit program, will allow 15 credits of appropriate law courses to be credited toward both MPH and JD degrees.
MSW/MPH A program of study leading to both a Master of Social Work (MSW) and a Master of Public Health (MPH). Students may earn up to a maximum of fifteen hours of dual credit.

The University of Memphis Graduate School encourages students of any discipline to initiate a dual degree. These programs allow up to 15 shared credit hours, allowing students to receive both degrees in a shorter time frame than pursuing each degree separately. Please contact the Graduate School for more information. 

Degree Requirements

Applicants seeking admission to dual-degree studies must apply separately to each of the two collaborating programs and must meet the admissions requirements of both. Once both schools grant admission to the individual degree programs, the student may begin an integrated dual-degree program. Students who are enrolled in programs with terminal degrees (e.g., JD, PharmD, Optometry, PhD, MD) are not required to take the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) for admittance to the MPH program.
