Applying for the Program

Students need to apply to the School of Public Health with a separate application.  You must be admitted to both programs to participate in the dual degree.  You will go through the formal application process for each school, which means you will need to fill out the full application for the School of Public Health (SPH).

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: 57 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.  We don’t have a limit on the number of students who can enroll.  If you are already a School of Public Affairs student, you can begin your SPH application right away (see the SPH for application deadlines), while you take your MPA classes.  It is best to get started on the application process right away, so that you can be sure that your advising matches your graduation goals.

Advising

Once admitted, you will have an advisor from each school.  Most likely, Professors Danielle Varda or Lloyd Burton will be your SPA advisor.  Your SPH advisor will be determined when you apply through their program.
