The BSPH program is open to enrollment in the professional sequence once all admission criteria are met, including the completion of the required pre-requisite courses. This means that this program does not have a competitive, limited admission process as some other programs in CHP do.
Students are admitted directly as Public Health students during the time that they are working toward the completion of pre-requisite course requirements. Students will be assigned an academic advisor who is a faculty member in the public health program. This advisor will provide guidance to assist the student in the process of preparing for the professional sequence of the BSPH program, creating a plan for program progression.
Once the student has successfully completed all of the required pre-requisite courses, the advisor will guide the student to begin the professional sequence of the Public Health Program (PUBH) and the student may begin taking the BSPH courses (PUBH prefix) at the 300 level and higher (see note below).
