Therefore, with Graduate Director's advisement, you can start taking some of the classes to begin your MPH studies to see if it is a good fit for you. These courses could then flow into your Program of Study once you are admitted into the MPH program. To insure this, please seek the Graduate Director, Dr. Wei Yang, advisement or you may wind up out of the course progression and/or may take courses that may not apply to your program of study.
