The undergraduate to graduate program allows Coe students to complete their Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) and Master of Public Health (MPH) at the University of Iowa in five years. Students will spend four years in residence at Coe, followed by a summer course (online), and one academic year in residence at the University of Iowa College of Public Health. Coe students will take a total of four MPH courses at Coe. These courses can be taken at the University of Iowa or through web-based course offerings. Students from any major at Coe can apply and be considered for admission to the MPH program.
Coe graduates have a record of successful completion of MPH degrees from national and international institutions of higher education (e.g., University of Iowa, Yale University, Georgia State University, UCLA, Tulane University, and University of Glasgow). Additionally, Coe students who earned MPH degrees have secured employment in a variety of private and public sector positions including neurosurgery residents, policy analysts, health education specialists, economic research specialists, and research associates. Others have pursued their medical degrees. The creation of an undergraduate to graduate program will enhance career opportunities for Coe students by allowing them to enter the burgeoning field of public health.
