Admissions


The Upstate Public Health Program in the College of Medicine at Upstate Medical University offers the following degrees and programs:

Certificate of Advanced Study in Public Health

The Certificate of Advanced Study in Public Health (CASPH) is a 5 course (15-credit hour) program of study. The certificate can be completed in as little as two semesters but students have up to five years to complete the requirements for the program. The Certificate Program is organized to offer a foundational curriculum centered around the public health competencies. The curriculum has been designed to reflect the interrelationship between public health practice and research and designed to train current and future practitioners and researchers in the core public health functions. The abbreviated training allows interested students, who are either unable to complete a master degree, yet interested in augmenting on-the-job training or supplementing an advanced degree with foundational public health principles and practices, the opportunity to acquire the necessary training to manage public health problems.

Master of Public Health - Data & Analytics

The Upstate Public Health MPH Degree requires a minimum of 42 credit hours and accommodates both the full and part-time students. Most full-time students complete the degree in 24 months, but students have up to five years to complete the degree. As an interdisciplinary degree, the MPH offers our students flexibility in regards to their interest and career aspirations. The diversity and complexity of today's public health concerns require professionals to have a broad base of knowledge, skills and experiences. In addition to the foundational and concentration-specific courses, students may choose from a menu of elective courses.

Students enrolled in the Master of Public Health Program will be automatically enrolled in the Data and Analytics Concentration.

Tuition is at the current SUNY graduate tuition rate for matriculated students.
